If you have been impacted by or experienced some type of sexual misconduct, you may want to first speak with an advocate about your reporting options. Regardless of whether you are already working with an advocate and/or do not wish to work with one, the following reporting options are available to you.

If you learn about another member of the community who has experienced some type of sexual misconduct, please call SafeCampus at 206.685.7233, so that SafeCampus staff may ensure this community member is informed of resources and support options. You may also wish to review University’s Title IX Protocol or this guide.

The University of Washington has several designated offices responsible for responding to, investigating, and resolving complaints. These officers serve all UW campuses and locations except where noted; the appropriate office to contact depends, in part, on the role of the person who is alleged to have engaged in the misconduct.
