Report + Support

The University of St Andrews is committed to creating a culture of inclusivity, diversity, equality and safety for students and staff. We have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of bullying, harassment, discrimination and sexual violence. Such behaviour is contrary to the values and ideals of our shared community which requires a commitment to treat everyone with dignity, courtesy and respect.

The University is equally concerned for the safety of students and staff.

All employees, students, and members of the public can use Report and Support to report complaints or concerns to the University and access support information.
