Changing the culture: Universities UK directory of case studies

Following the publication of 'Changing the culture: report of the Universities UK Taskforce examining violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting university students' in October 2016, Universities UK – the representative organisation for the UK's universities – has developed a directory of university case studies.

The directory features details of the practical responses of individual UK universities, including a number of innovative projects and initiatives such as improving incident reporting procedures and improving student and staff training. The LSE case study is included on pages 29–30 of the directory.

London Nightline: confidential advice for students

The LSE Student Wellbeing Service is affiliated with Nightline, a service that provides confidential listening, support and practical information for students in London.

Nightline volunteers are from the student community and therefore come with an understanding of the issues that university life entails.

Nightline is open every night from 6pm to 8am during term time.
