University of Cambridge procedure for handling cases of harassment and sexual misconduct (award-bearing courses)


We are committed to providing an environment that is free from discrimination and affirms the right of all members to be treated with dignity and respect.

The University of Cambridge prohibits students from engaging in physical misconduct, sexual misconduct and abusive behaviour. These terms are defined within the University’s Rules of Behaviour.

If you have experienced any form of misconduct, harassment, bullying or discrimination, and whether you would like to report it or not, it is advised that you speak to the Assistant Director of Academic Centres: Student Experience (or delegate) who will be able to provide you with information on external support services for your circumstances.


Procedures for reporting student harassment and sexual misconduct

There are a number of ways in which you can report instances of harassment and sexual misconduct:

a) Complete an anonymous report form

b) Procedure for Student Harassment and Sexual Misconduct (where you would like action taken to limit your possible interactions with another student, but no formal sanctions to be taken)

c) The University’s Student Disciplinary Procedure (if you want your complaint to be formally investigated with findings made and possible sanctions imposed)

d) Report a member of staff through the Student Complaints Procedure

e) Report to the police

For the full procedure and guidance on all of the above procedures please see the Office of Student Conduct, Complaints and Appeals website:
