Standards of behaviour

The University and the Students' Union have clear policies around dignity, respect and discriminatory harassment. It's very important that you take some time to read and digest all of the resources on this page to ensure that everyone in our community is treated - and treats others - with respect.

How to report harassment

The University of Nottingham is committed to ensuring we do everything we can to provide a safe and supportive environment for everyone. Our campuses are a pleasant and inclusive place to study and work but, as with any community, issues can arise. 

If you have experienced or witnessed harassment, please let us know about the incident(s) using the Report + Support button opposite. You can tell us what happened anonymously or ask to speak an advisor. Speaking to an advisor does not mean that you are making a formal report to the university; it enables you to access the support you or someone else needs to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

You can also find information on internal and external support, policies, guidance and our campaigns. All reports will be handled in confidence and we will never share your details with any support services without your permission.
