Get Support

We are committed to helping all Jayhawks get the support they need. Whatever your situation may be, there are resources on campus and in the community to support you.

If you or someone is at imminent risk of harm to self or others, please contact KU Public Safety or dial 911 for police, fire, or medical emergency response.

Formal Report

The following offices serve as formal notice to the university and legally require follow up with all those involved. It is appropriate to submit almost any incident to the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX as they can investigate a situation plus help you get the support you need from other campus resources.

Informal Report

The Ombuds Office is a confidential, impartial, informal, and independent office on campus where members of the campus community can discuss issues they may be facing as a student, staff, or faculty member.
