Strathlife Report & Support

Incident reporting form

A safe campus is the responsibility of everyone who is part of the University community: staff, students and visitors.

We all have a responsibility to report if someone’s safety has been threatened, whether that is through inappropriate behaviour, verbal or physical harassment, or other actions that make them feel unsafe, for example threatening posters, stickers or graffiti.

Please report, even if you think you don’t have enough information for us to take action immediately.

What can the University or Students’ Union do?

Security staff can help if you are feeling unsafe:

  • we can help you find appropriate support
  • we can investigate in cases where staff or students may have breached University discipline
  • we can consult the police where a crime may have been committed
  • we can look at University and Strath Union procedures and working practices to see if we can improve safety for you
  • we can record incidents and investigate where problems seem to keep occurring

Staff will decide how best to respond to the situation. We will take into account what you want the University or Students’ Association to do. In some cases the University may need to take action regarding the report you make whether you request this or not. This will usually be to safeguard other students, staff and visitors..
