Studying and working at university can be a great experience and we want to ensure you stay safe.

If you are aware of, or have experienced an incident of sexual assault or harassment, report it online, or call our Safer Communities team on 08 9266 4444.

If we become aware of sexual assault or harassment affecting members of the Curtin community or visitors to our campuses, we aim:

  1. To support and protect victims and survivors, in terms of both their physical and emotional wellbeing, and their study or work responsibilities;

  2. To give priority to investigating any allegations made in a fair and consistent manner, and with due consideration to the rights of all concerned; and

  3. To monitor our responses to continuously improve our support for victims and survivors, and to ensure consistency in our approach.

Our priority is to protect and support all members of the Curtin community. We will provide support regardless of where or when the incident occurred.

Consistent with our values, we will encourage and model respectful relationships at our campuses and ensure there is a shared understanding of the behaviours expected at Curtin University.
