Complaints and Grievances

Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment

ANUSA stands firmly against any sort of sexual violence and is determined to support the survivors of sexual harassment or sexual assault.


“We believe you, it was not your fault”


ANUSA Student Assistance Advisors are trained to respond to sexual violence disclosures and can assist students who have experienced such. We can help you establish immediate security, provide options of support and assist in accessing restorative justice through internal ANU procedures or external.


If you are assisting a person who has experienced sexual violence, you can also come in to discuss with us. We can assist you, provide an opportunity to debrief, reassure you that you are taking the right steps and we can help provide access to additional resources. A few guidelines for persons who are supporting other students with sexual violence are shared at this webpage.


For more information, please contact ANUSA Assistance Advisors at or call at 02 6125 2444.
