Sexual Violence Resources

Queen's University is committed to maintaining a positive learning, living and working environment in which Sexual Violence will not be tolerated.

Within the Policy on Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Violence Involving Students, the designated support office for students who have made, or would like to make, a disclosure or complaint is the Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Services. The designated support office for student respondents may be accessed through this office, the Office of the University Ombudsperson.

We are independent, confidential, and impartial. The Office is not the decision-maker, nor an advocate for any party, and also cannot overturn any decision or compel any university representative to take a particular action.
