Misconduct and discrimination
We are committed to providing an inclusive community and a safe and supportive environment for our students, staff and partners.
Our Dignity at Work and Study Policy outlines our approach to tackling harassment, bullying and hate incidents.
If you have experienced or witnessed harassment, bullying or hate incidents of any kind then you should contact the Student Support team in the first instance via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reporting an incident
To formally report an incident of serious misconduct including harassment, hate incidents and sexual violence, students at Hull and York can use the University of York’s Report and Support tool. There are two ways in which you can report – anonymously and with contact details. If you report with contact details then a member of staff will contact you to discuss next steps and advise of support available to you. If you report anonymously then the information you provide to inform our work in preventing incidents of this nature in the future.
Our Universities also have a range of guidance and support: visit the University of Hull student support information or the University of York's Support and Report website.

Emergency student support funding

In recognition of the coronavirus pandemic and the impact of this on students, our Universities have also introduced emergency funding for current students who need immediate financial support.
