Students' Union statement | Hate crime and Coronavirus

people on campus Falmer House on campus

The Students' Union has been made aware of students experiencing racism, hate crime and discrimination both on campus and in town, in light of the recent Coronavirus outbreak in Brighton. We find this deeply concerning and want our students to know that this behavior is inexcusable. 

We want to reiterate that we have a zero tolerance policy on racism.

This is not conducive to a diverse and inclusive Sussex and we believe in the strength of being a community. We want our students to feel safe and supported while at university. 

The Students' Union has set up a reporting tool to hear your experiences. You can also use the University's reporting system. The University has processes in place to deal with these instances. If you experience this in town please reach out to the Racial Harassment Forum (details below). You can also report the incident to the police, should you wish to do so.
