Campaign to end sexual violence

Prevention of Harassment and Sexual Violence
University of the Arts London

Sexual violence and harassment affect people from all backgrounds, across all sections of society. At UAL, we are committed to ensuring that all of our students feel safe and supported. The University and Students' Union are working together to prevent, challenge and end sexual violence.

Sexual consent

It is really important that you know your rights and responsibilities in relation to sexual consent. Our consent campaign aims to raise awareness of what consent means, and encourage students to be aware of times when a person may not be able to consent. You can take a look at the UAL consent webpage or contact the Students’ Union to take part in a consent workshop. For a quick introduction to consent, take a look at the disrespectnobody video

Support

If you have experienced sexual violence, please remember: it’s not your fault, you are not to blame and you deserve support. We recognise that it can be really difficult to talk about harassment or sexual violence, but we would encourage students to speak to someone, and get support.  Any student who contacts our support services will be listened to, believed and helped to make informed choices about what they might want to do next. Find out about the support available at UAL and through external agencies.

Reporting

You can report harassment and sexual violence to the university through our Tell someone service. You can speak confidentially to an adviser or report anonymously through the online form. If you choose to speak to an adviser, we will be led by you in terms of next steps.
