I have experienced a Hate Crime
If you have experienced a Hate Crime, you can visit the Student Support Centre for advice and guidance. The Team will also be able to discuss with you reporting procedures, which may include making an complaint against a person or group of people anonymously. You will be advised of any available support and be encouraged to access whichever you feel is appropriate.
Alternatively, by completing the online reporting form, you are able to report anonymously to the University of Lincoln of any Hate Crime activities that you have experienced or been made aware of. If you provide your contact details, we will get in touch with you to offer support.

If you would like to make a complaint against another student, the Student Support Centre can advise you. To find out more about the complaints process, please read the Student Anti-Bullying and Harassment Policy. If you would like to make a complaint against a member of staff, the Advice Service, which is located within the Student Support Centre can advise you on this process. To find out more about this complaints process, please read the Student Complaints Procedure.
You can also come and talk to the Advice Service in confidence. We are impartial and here to advise in your best interests. We have a drop in service between 12pm and 2pm, Monday to Friday in the Student Support Centre. Alternatively you can email us on: email@example.com
If you would like to make a report to the police, the Student Support Centre can support you to do this. If you are not sure whether you want to make a report to the police, you are able to submit an anonymous report through Crimestoppers. If you would like more guidance on how to do this, please get in contact with the Student Support Centre. Making an anonymous report does not preclude you from making a full report to the police at a later date. Whether or not you make a police report is your decision, and you can get advice from the Student Support Centre regardless. We will never pass your details on to the police without your consent.
If you feel your mental health or wellbeing has been affected due to experiencing a Hate Crime, you should contact the Student Wellbeing Centre. The Student Wellbeing Centre has two services which can support you; the Counselling Service and the Wellbeing Service.
