University Hall has been working closely with the Student Guild, the independent residential colleges, and colleagues from across the University to make our residence and broader UWA campus safer.
In October 2017, the University and the five residential colleges (College Row) commissioned a review of sexual misconduct in the college setting in accordance to Recommendation 9 of the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) report Change the Course: National Report on Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment at Australian Universities, released in 2016.
The Review engaged residents in an online questionnaire, interviewed a number of residents, and commissioned written submissions from College staff and other University stakeholders. The Heads of College were also tasked to complete an audit tool for each College.
Today, this report has been released. If you wish to view its results, conclusions and recommendations please click here to download a copy.
Finally, University Hall and The University of Western Australia will not tolerate any form of sexual assault or harassment involving students, staff or visitors on our campus. The safety of our students and staff is something that we take very seriously.
