Unwanted Sexual Encounter

Come to Student Health and Wellness. It's safe and confidential. Visit CAPS or Medical Services, or talk to a confidential employee in any of our units⁠—we can help you, and the choices are yours.

SHW is a supportive, safe, and confidential place for female, male, transgender, gender-diverse, and non-binary students. We can address any physical, mental, and/or emotional concerns that you may have due to an unwanted sexual encounter.

Here is a PDF of resources available to students who have experienced an unwanted sexual encounter or sexual assault.

Whether the encounter(s) occurred recently or long ago, we can provide you a range of services. The type of care we provide will depend on when the encounter(s) occurred: navigate the options on the left hand side to learn more about options available to you at SHW.
