Where can I access support?

ECU encourages all students to seek support. Sexual assault and harassment is not something you have to cope with on your own.

We have staff available to support all students who have experienced sexual assault or sexual harassment. You do not need to submit a formal report to access this support. ECU will not contact the police without your consent.
