both on and off campus:
- 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.
- If you rent an apartment OFF CAMPUS and you have experienced a sexual assault or an incidence of intimate partner violence, you are legally allowed to be released from your lease agreement without financial penalty. Professionals who work with victims may provide assistance to victims wishing to end their contract. Call the S.O.S. crisis service 24 hours/day at 302-831-2226 or call Student Wellness & Health Promotion at 302-831-3457 during business hours to set up an appointment with Angela Seguin for information and assistance.
- If you are concerned that you may be in danger of physical abuse or sexual assault by an intimate partner (boyfriend, girlfriend, ex, etc.), 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.
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.
