The University of Kent has an online reporting tool where students can easily report incidents of sexual misconduct and assault, harassment (non-sexual), assault, bullying, discrimination and hate incidents. The tool allows both anonymous and named reports.  If you choose to provide identifiable information, we will contact you to offer support or discuss ways that you can (if you wish to) report the incident formally. Anonymous reports help us to make our university the safest it can be, as we will review all anonymous information to ensure that we are ​monitoring incidents reported and putting ​new strategies in place where needed. Have your voice heard. Visit Report and Support now.
