Covid-19
To report a Covid-19 incident (for example, if someone persists in breaking the rules or fails to respect community members), visit the Report Covid-19 issues web page.
Students coming forward to disclose or report any form of abuse or assault, including bullying and harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct or hate crime will not face University disciplinary action for having breached Covid-19 health and safety guidelines. No University disciplinary action will be taken in relation to breaches of Covid-19 health and safety guidelines which are disclosed by students in the process of providing information to the University for the purposes of contact tracing. 


If you are experiencing bullying that you believe is not a serious or criminal offence, you may want to consider the following informal options: 
  • Discuss the problem with the person causing the offence– this should comprise giving one or more concrete examples of the unacceptable behaviour and agreeing how behaviour will change in the future. You may not be confident doing this alone and can request support from some other person such as a trusted member of staff, a friend, a Student Services adviser (for students), or HR (for staff). 
  • Write to the person causing the offence, outlining the unacceptable behaviour, with examples, and asking for a change in behaviour. You may want to have someone read over this letter so as not to escalate the situation. 
If this is a serious or criminal offence, you can consider formal reporting options for reporting any bullying incidents.
