Harassment and bullying

We believe that every member of staff has the right to work in a supportive environment, free from harassment, bullying, and discrimination. Similarly, every student at the University has the right to study and be taught in an environment that is supportive and free from such behaviours.

Our approach

The University has a Harassment and Bullying Procedure (PDF) to incorporate clear guidance for staff, students and visitors.

Our values of Integrity, Inclusion, Inspiration, and Innovation are integral to all that we do. We want Surrey to be a place where everyone feels welcomed, valued and safe. 

The University of Surrey will not tolerate harassment and bullying of any kind. This means that every report of harassment and bullying will be treated seriously with proportionate investigation and action. The procedure applies to conduct on our campuses, off campus and online.
