Restore Respect: a support pathway for students

restore-respect-logoOur new support service is for students who may have experienced incidents of discrimination, prejudice, bullying or harassment from other students at the university.

Students can report incidents into the ‘Restore Respect’ service and receive information about the different talking approaches available to address any harm done. The service focuses on the needs of the students affected and empowers them to consider what next steps might be most helpful to them.

The service is entirely voluntary for all parties. Students who may wish to consider this option can choose to engage as much or as little as they wish or feel comfortable to do so. Restore Respect can support students who have experienced difficulties with their peers.

How to ‘Restore Respect’

For further information about Restore Respect, please contact the Student Wellbeing Team at or call 01273 642895 (Mon-Thurs, 8.30am–5pm, Fri 8.30am–4.30pm). You will then be put in touch with a fully trained university member of staff who will help you explore your options.

Further information about Restore Respect can also be found on the university website at

Our commitment

The University of Brighton is committed to fostering a stimulating, supportive and inclusive learning and working environment that is free from discrimination, prejudice, bullying and harassment.

To this end, related incidents are taken very seriously and likely to result in significant disciplinary action. Equally, the university provides a range of support to students that may have experienced incidents of this nature.
