Reporting to the University and the Students’ Union:

If you have reported to the police:

  • Please fill out this online form to report to the University
  • If you do not wish to report to the University, please still consider accessing some support from any of the links on this page or  through LeicesterTalks.

Anonymous reporting:

You can report using the online form without leaving your contact details if you choose to remain anonymous. However, please make a note of when you submitted the form, in case you would like to revisit the information submitted at a later date.

If you report anonymously, the University is unable to follow up any claims made in the report if formal identification is required. If you want an incident to be formally followed up by the University, you must leave your contact details on the form. Anonymous reports will still be kept for a defined period of time and can be referred back to when required if you wish to remain anonymous at the time of submitting the form, but then wish to be identified.
