Report and Support

Report and Support allows anyone who has experienced sexual violence, harassment, or misconduct of any kind to report or disclose incidents to the University. If you’ve been subjected to any form of misconduct, you can tell us anonymously through Report and Support.

We are working hard to make Edinburgh Napier University a better, safer and more equal place to work and study. Report and Support helps us do this by allowing our students and staff to disclose misconduct anonymously.


These are the types of behaviour that can be reported through Report and Support:

  • Sexual assault
  • Relationship abuse
  • Hate crimes
  • Bully and harassment
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination

There are two types of reports that can be made through Report and Support: anonymous reporting and reporting to an adviser:


Anonymous reporting

This option allows survivors of misconduct to anonymously report an incident. Personal details about the perpetrator and survivor will not be taken at this time. This option provides the University with unidentifiable information which can be used to create a picture of any issues arising on campus. This information cannot be used to pursue complaints or begin a legal process. Please note that we will not be able to offer direct advice or begin an official complaint process.

Reporting to an adviser

Reporting to an adviser is the second option that is available through Report and Support for survivors of misconduct. This will give survivors the opportunity to disclose personal details about themselves, the perpetrator, and the incident. If a report is made to an adviser, a specially trained staff member from Edinburgh Napier will respond. They will work with the survivor to take appropriate action and seek a resolution.

Guidelines for staff - what to do if a student tells you they have been sexually harassed or assaulted

Support for students who have experienced sexual violence is a specialist matter and non-specialist staff are not expected to provide in depth or on-going support. However a student who has experienced sexual violence or harassment may decide to disclose it to any member of staff. These short guidelines​ have been created to assist staff who may need to have such a conversation and refer the student on for more specialist support elsewhere.​
