It is the survivor's right to choose whether to report rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment.

Many survivors who decide to report do not do so immediately.  It is never too late to make a report or to seek help from UQ, community groups or the police.

Not sure if you want to submit a report? You can contact a member of our First Responder Network to talk about your options and any questions you have about our reporting process. 

Need emergency support?

How can I submit a report to UQ?

If you are a survivor of sexual assault or misconduct you can report the incident to UQ by:

We will not disclose any identifiable information to others outside UQ unless we are legally required to do so or believe there is a genuine threat to a person’s health and safety.

What happens to my report?

By submitting a report you are not initiating a formal reporting process. We will only use the information you have provided to put you in contact with a member of our Sexual Misconduct Support Unit who will let you know your options.  

Reports can be kept anonymous and no further action needs to be taken. The choice is with the survivor on how they intend to proceed.

Why should I make a report?

To improve our policies and support services, UQ needs to track and report on incidents of sexual assault and misconduct. 

Reports can be kept anonymous and no further action needs to be taken. The choice is with the survivor on how they intend to proceed.

I want to report to the police

If you are out of immediate danger, the Sexual Misconduct Support Unit can provide support to you to report the incident to the police. 

If you want to report the incident to police without involving UQ, please contact your local police station.
