I think I’ve been sexually assaulted 

If you think you have been sexually assaulted, it may be hard to know what to do or how to feel. What happened was not your fault. What you do next is your choice.  

If you are in immediate danger or seriously injured, call 999 (or 112 from a mobile). 

Find a safe space.  If an incident has just happened try and find somewhere you feel safe. If this isn't possible and you are scared or fearful on campus you can call AUB security on 07471145782. 

Talk to a friend or someone you trust, or look at the support available to you on these pages.

Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs): ISVAs are trained to look after the needs of a survivor of rape or sexual violence to ensure they receive the best possible care and understanding. Contact them and ask to speak to an advisor in confidence. ISVAs are there to provide information to ensure an individual can make a decision that is right for them.

 The Faith and Reflection Centre, based in Talbot House on the edge of the AUB / BU campuses, has a quiet room and offers a quiet, supportive space. Open to people of all faiths, or none, the Centre is a reassuring and secure environment.
