At RMIT, we are committed to providing a respectful and safe place to study and work.

If you are feeling unsafe or unsure what to do about threatening or unwanted behaviour, you can talk to us about your concerns and options - even if the behaviour happened off campus.

If you or someone you know has experienced unwanted or threatening behaviour - including sexual harassment or assault - we can help.

When you contact Safer Community, we will:

  • listen
  • try to understand what’s important to you
  • explain and explore options - you decide which is most appropriate
  • always consider your well-being
  • discuss with you if we need to take steps to ensure the safety of our community

Sexual assault is any unwanted sexual behaviour that you have not freely agreed to.

No matter where or how it happened - we are here to help.

Find out which support options are available to you.

RMIT has partnered with Universities Australia on the Respect.Now.Always campaign. It aims to understand when and how sexual harassment and assault happen at universities so we can work to prevent it and to provide support.

The results of the first national survey on sexual harassment and assault in university communities were released in August. Read RMIT’s full results here
