  • Sexual Misconduct

    If you or someone you know think they have been the victim of sexual violence (defined as any sexual act that occurs without consent), intimate partner violence, stalking, or other forms of harassment or interpersonal violence, resources are available. Various actions may be considered sexual misconduct, and all are treated seriously. Learn more about how you can get involved about ending sexual and interpersonal violence in our community.

    If you are having thoughts of suicide or any type of self-harm — or if you witness, hear, or see anyone exhibiting suicidal warning signs — get help immediately.

    If the risk seems imminent:

    • Call the UR Police (URPD) Emergency number (804) 289-8911. URPD will respond and involve other resources as needed.
    • Other alternatives include calling 911 (especially if you are off campus), or going to the nearest emergency room (the closest ER to campus is St. Mary’s Hospital).

    If the risk does not seem imminent:

    • To get help for a UR student who may be at risk of suicide when the risk does not seem imminent, please relay your concerns as soon as possible via the secure online form.
