Zero tolerance

Bullying, harassment, discrimination, victimisation and sexual violence are wrong and aren’t tolerated at UAL. If you have been victimised Arts SU Advice can help you explore your options and link you with appropriate help. You will be listened to in a safe and non-judgemental environment and we’ll keep what you say confidential unless you want us to disclose it. There are exceptional cases where we have to break confidentiality, you can read about these in our confidentiality policy.

Arts SU Advice can also assist you if you have been accused of bullying, harassment, discrimination and victimisation.

If you would rather report directly to UAL you can find out more about your options.

UAL Support

How can the SU Advice Service help?

  • We can advise you on the process and your options. We will ensure you have all the information to make the right next steps for you.
  • We can help you report to the university.
  • We can discuss how this may impact on other areas e.g. your studies, upcoming assessments or your living situation.
  • We can attend meetings with you about this as an independent person to offer support, guidance and ensure you get a fair process.
  • We can also link you with support at UAL or externally.

Arts SU takes these issues very seriously

If you want to make a complaint against an Arts SU Officer or staff member regarding bullying, harassment, discrimination, victimisation or sexual violence you can do so here. Unfortunately, the Arts SU Advice Service can’t advise you if your complaint is about Arts SU Officers, Services or Staff as this is a conflict of interest.
