If you choose to submit a report anonymously, we will not be able to identify you or contact you, and so we are unable to give you any support or to initiate an investigation or formal process about your concerns. The exception to this is if the duty of care guidance applies.  

Anonymous reports enable us to build a picture of issues where people do not feel able to reveal personal information but would like UCL to be aware something has taken place.  Anonymous reports provide statistical information, which is used to monitor trends at UCL and to inform our proactive and preventative work on tackling bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct.

If you would prefer, you can report by contacting an advisor, in which case you will be able to speak to someone about the support and resolutions available. 


If a member of staff or a student is named and/or identifiable within the report, their name will be removed from the report and it will not be stored.

If you would like UCL to take more formal action, such as investigate, we ask you to contact an advisor. There are certain circumstances when an anonymous report may require UCL to carry out an investigation or report to a third party, please read our duty of care guidance for more information.

We understand that you may not wish to disclose the department or institute you are connected to, however we encourage you to disclose the faculty or central office. This will help UCL monitor trends and inform our proactive, preventative work.

Please note that area will be interpreted as the same Faculty, unless Departmental information is provided and it will be interpreted as the same Department.

The following questions are optional. We monitor reports by these equality groups to better inform our work and to take a more evidence-based approach to targeting action and resources . For example, we might want to know how many men compared to women have made a report in the last 6 months. The equality monitoring information you provide in these questions is for statistical purposes and will be used when collated with numbers large enough to ensure individuals cannot be identified. The information will also be used by UCL to decide when to carry out an investigation or report to a third party in accordance with the duty of care guidance.
