We believe unlawful discrimination is never okay. Discrimination is contrary to the Equality Act 2010 and the University's Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Code. 

  • What is discrimination? It may help to understand what constitutes unlawful discrimination before you decide what to do. 
  • Talk to a friend. Talking things through with someone you trust can sometimes help. 
  • Is this a situation that could be resolved without intervention? For instance, talking to the person who is discriminating against you and telling them how this has affected you. You should only do this if you feel safe and confident to do so.
  • Reporting to the University.  Students and staff can report an incident using the University’s Report + Support pages. You can choose to do this anonymously or you can make a report with contact details. If you choose to make a report with contact details, we will be able to talk through the options and support available to you, in confidence. You can make a report using the buttons below. 
  • University Procedure.  If you choose to make a formal complaint to the University about a student or member of staff there are procedures that set out the steps you will need to follow.
