Student Harassment and Sexual Assault

Living in a community involves treating other individuals with respect, in a courteous and civilised way, whatever their sex or status. The College finds unacceptable any form of behaviour that amounts to harassment.

College accepts the University guidelines that the defining features of harassment are “that the behaviour is offensive to the recipient, is unwanted by the recipient and would be regarded as harassment by any reasonable person”. 

The full College policy on harassment or sexual misconduct can be found below. The procedure outlined therein has been agreed by the Senior Tutors’ Committee. The College endorses the University's ‘Breaking the Silence campaign’, link provided below.

Any individual who considers that another’s behaviour (whosoever that person may be) falls into the category of harassment, including sexual or racial harassment, may consult their own or any of the Tutors, the College Nurses, or the JCR Welfare or Women’s Officer.
