Sexually harmful behaviours

Victoria University of Wellington is committed to supporting a learning environment that is free from sexually harmful behaviours.

You are entitled to study, socialise, and work in an environment of safety and respect. We take reports of concerning behaviour seriously.

Sexually harmful behaviours—including sexual harassment, sexual assault, and bullying of any kind—undermine safety and respect, and may be a breach of the University’s Student Conduct Statute or Staff Conduct Policy.

If you are feeling unsafe or have experienced behaviours at University or within the halls that concern you, the Student Interest and Conflict Resolution team are here to support you. You can contact us for confidential information and advice about options, reporting, and support.

If you are an international student please be aware that:

  • Making a report of concerning behaviour will not impact your visa
  • Any information you provide will not be passed on to your family or other universities unless you request that this information is shared
  • We can provide a translator at your request
