Threats and violence
Here you can find information about what you should do and who you should turn to in the event of a threatening situation. Threats and violence are acts that transcend the boundaries of what is legal, socially accepted and permitted.
Emergency threats and violent situations
Emergency situations can be abuse, other physical abuse, direct threats of injury or threats of direct danger to someone's life.
- Dial 112 (SOS Alarm)
- Avoid intervening yourself so that you do not expose yourself or others to danger.
Other ongoing threatening situations
If you are on campus and witness or end up in a situation that you experience as potentially threatening and violent, we encourage you to act.
- Call the University hotline number 0046 35-299 10 30 (the number is available 24/7) and ask for a security guard, if you are on campus. The guard will assess if the police should be contacted. Please note that only the police have the right to physically evict someone from the area.
- In an emergency situation, you can also turn to a teacher, programme co-ordinator or any other available staff on campus.
