1 in 3 women students in the UK will experience sexual assault at university and 1 in 7 women students will experience a serious sexual assault at university.
When we think about the university experience, we tend to concentrate on the positives; the parties, the amazing people we meet, achievements inside and outside the classroom, and all of the experiences that help us grow into outstanding graduates. However, for a staggeringly large portion of our campus community, sexual violence and harassment forms just as much a part of the university experience as those things that we choose to put in college prospectuses.
At Royal Holloway we try to do our best to look out for each other and keep each other safe, so this week, and going forward, we stand with the survivors of sexual assault against gendered and sexual violence.
If you need urgent medical treatment, call for an ambulance:
*Alert Security on 01784 443888 or go to the 24 hr Security service at Founder’s Reception.
Security need to know that the emergency services have been called so that they can direct the police/ambulance to the right place on campus when they arrive.
