Advice and Response
Specialist support for student allegations of sexual misconduct, harassment and hate
There is no place for hate, harassment or sexual violence at The University of Manchester.
We provide holistic, trauma-informed support to all students involved in an incident, and guidance for colleagues supporting students experiencing a range of complex and challenging circumstances. If an incident is formally reported, our conduct and discipline staff will investigate and may take disciplinary action against the responding party. If you have questions that aren't answered on these pages, get in touch with our team by email and we will aim to respond within three working days.
Please note that we are continuing to populate and expand the content on this page. If you have any questions or suggestions of information you would like to see, please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
