We believe that sexual harassment is never okay. It may be helpful to consider what constitutes sexual harassment to help you decide what to do next. 
There is help available if you have experienced sexual harassment. No matter where you were, what you were doing or wearing - sexual harassment is not acceptable.

Think

If you are in immediate danger or seriously injured call 999 (or 112 from a mobile).
If you are on campus, you can call Security Services on 24/7 365 days a year on 01904 32 4444 or use the Safezone App.
If an incident has just happened, try and find somewhere you feel safe.
