NYU cares about its community and is committed to helping those who are the victims of crimes.
If you are a student, staff or faculty member, or otherwise affiliated with NYU and have been sexually assaulted, stalked, harassed, or experienced dating violence or domestic violence, the NYU Department of Public Safety can help.
The Victim Services Unit assists those who are considering reporting their experience to the police as well as those who have already decided to do so.
We walk those requesting assistance through the process of filing a police report and explain other judicial processes.
Upon request, the Victim Services Unit will accompany victims to the police department, the Office of the District Attorney, Family Court or the Family Justice Center.
Other services provided by the Victim Services Unit include:
- Accompaniment to the hospital or other service agency
- Assistance in obtaining an Order of Protection
- Assistance in obtaining a Temporary Restraining Order
- Assistance in filing the Crime Victims Compensation form
- Serve as a liaison with law enforcement
- Serve as a liaison with social service agencies
Please feel free to contact the Victim Services Unit at any time by calling 212.992.8600.
You have the right:
- To make a report to Public Safety and/or appropriate law enforcement authorities, or choose not to report.
- To file an internal complaint with NYU and receive an equitable, respectful process, with an assistance by an advisor of your choice (if desired).
- To be reasonably protected by the University from retaliation for reporting an incident or participating in any investigation or proceeding at NYU.
- To receive the University’s assistance in obtaining academic accommodations, medical care, and/or counseling/support services where available and/or appropriate, regardless of whether an investigation is pursued under the applicable disciplinary procedures or with local law enforcement.
