University residences should be doing everything possible to stop sexual violence on campus

I AGREE

2018 survey results: Which Uni residences are training to prevent sexual assault?

Last year's Australian Human Rights Commission report found that students who lived in university residences were more likely than other students to have been sexually assaulted.

Residences should be doing everything possible to prevent sexual violence in their communities - including providing their students and staff with expert led training in the area.

Find out which residences are training their students and staff in consent and preventing sexual violence, and which are involving experts from a sexual assault service, using the arrows and search tools on our table below.

Fair Agenda has contacted 225 university residences across Australia with a survey asking what, if any, training they will provide to students and relevant staff in 2018. As of the 14 March 2018, just 148 residences have been willing to respond to the survey, and just 93 are involving a sexual assault service in any of their student trainings. (You can read Fair Agenda's analysis of the results here.)

The table below summarises residences' responses to a few key survey questions as at 14 March 2018. You can view all residences' full length responses to Fair Agenda's survey here.
