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.
