residential college and rapeConsidering University next year? Is your child thinking of living in a Residential College? You may wish to read  The Red Zone report  published in full recently by End Rape on Campus.

There are currently 39 universities in Australia with 218 residential colleges or halls attached to them. This report includes case studies at 12 universities including all the Group of Eight universities.

Studying at University is a major change from secondary school. How safe will your child be at their chosen University or Residential College? We encourage parents and students to look beyond the glossy marketing brochures and beautiful images. Ask questions, read the report, inform yourself about the history of any organisation on your shopping list.

Campus-specific reports on sexual assault and harassment from the Australian Human Rights Commission were released late last year. End Rape on Campus Australia has also pulled key statistics from these reports, take a look and see how the University you are considering compares.
