- If you are a resident of University Residence Halls, and your assailant lives nearby, the staff in your hall may be able to facilitate an expedient move for your safety and wellbeing. See your Resident Assistant and/or Hall Director for more information about your options. They may also be able to assist you in reaching some of the other resources mentioned in this website. You can also call the S.O.S. 24 hour number to have a Victim Advocate assist you in seeking Emergency Housing whether on or off campus.
- If you rent an apartment OFF CAMPUS and you have experienced a sexual assault or an incidence of intimate partner violence, you have both short-term and long-term relocation options. You may be a candidate for on-campus Emergency Housing. To learn more, call the S.O.S. 24 hour service to speak with a Victim Advocate. You may also wish to go to a DV Shelter in Delaware. A Victim Advocate can also assist you in seeking these services and securing transportation. Finally, in the long term, you may be eligible for a Delaware law in the Tenant-Landlord code that allows victims to be released from their lease agreement without financial penalty. Professionals who work with victims must write a letter verifying the eligibility. To speak with a professional on campus about this option, contact Student Wellness & Health Promotion at 302-831-3457 during business hours and set up an appointment with Angela Seguin. You can always call S.O.S. 24 hours/day for more information. Call 302-831-2226 (Student Health), ask to be put in touch with S.O.S. They will ask for a first name & phone number and the S.O.S. volunteer will call you back within 10 minutes.
- If you are concerned that you may be in danger of physical abuse or sexual assault by an intimate partner (boyfriend, girlfriend, ex, etc.), and you don't wish to utilize S.O.S. advocacy, you may call Delaware's Domestic Violence Hotline at 302-762-6110. Hotline staff can provide you with information about area shelters where you can go as a temporary safe place to stay. The hotline staff will be able to answer questions you have about utilizing a shelter and other services offered. A friend may call for you to gather information, but ultimately the hotline staff member will need to speak with the victim directly.
- If you think that you are in a potentially abusive or violent relationship but you aren't sure, or you think you may have experienced a sexual assault, you can call S.O.S. and speak to a volunteer 24 hours/day to discuss your concerns, learn about options, and get referrals to helpful resources. Or make an appointment with our DV Counselor by calling Student Wellness & Health Promotion at 831-3457 during business hours.
- If you are in immediate danger, call 911 for police assistance.
To reach the SOS Victim Advocate on duty (24 hrs/day) call 302-831-2226. The person who answers will take a first name and phone number and the advocate will call you back within 10 minutes.
