Sexual assault, indecent assault & sexual harassment

We want all members of the UTS community to be safe from sexual assault and harassment.
If you or someone you know has been affected, please seek professional support from a UTS or community service. You can also report sexual assault to the Police. This page offers further information about support and reporting procedures.

If you require immediate help, call 000 or UTS Security on 1800 249 559.

If you are a UTS student or staff member experiencing sexual assault or are concerned about someone in our UTS community, please contact the UTS Sexual Assault Support Line on 1800 531 626 (24 hours).
