It’s your choice. It's completely up to you whether or not to report what's happened. No-one else can or should make that choice for you.
- Police. In an emergency or if you are in immediate danger you should dial 999. Otherwise, you can call 101 or visit your local police station to report a crime. Reporting is a big decision and all of the support services linked to above can support you with this, if you decide to make a police report.
- University. If the perpetrator is a member of the University community you will have the option of submitting a formal report. The first step to making a formal report is to speak with an advisor, who will be able to provide you with advice and support on what options are available to make an informed decision.
