Safety and Legal Resources:

  • International Students: UW International Student Services (ISS) updates their website regularly with information for F1 and J1 visa students. 
  • Student Legal Services: Student Legal Services (SLS) is an on-campus law office that provides a safe and confidential space for all UW-Seattle and Bothell students who have legal questions or concerns. They offer free 40-minute consultations on a broad range of issues. Students can also hire them for ongoing representation for a low hourly rate.
  • Know Your Rights: ACLU's guide to what your rights are, how to exercise them, and what to do when your rights are violated.
  • UW Bias Incident Reporting
  • SafeCampus: The UW violence prevention and response team at SafeCampus is available to anonymously discuss safety and well-being concerns for yourself or others.
  • Title IX: UW policies prohibiting sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and other forms of sexual misconduct apply to all students, faculty and staff—whether the prohibited behaviors happen in person, online, over the phone, or in some other form. You have the right to make a formal report through the Title IX Office. The Title IX Office also provides support and resources so that those who have experienced harm better understand their options. Note: The 2020 Department of Education federal regulations, effective August 14, 2020, define sexual harassment and other sexual misconduct more narrowly than UW policy and require specific procedures for investigating allegations, possibly including a verbally conducted cross-examination. Read more about these changes on the FAQ page.
