UvA's code of conduct

The UvA aims to prevent and combat sexual intimidation, bullying, aggression, violence, stalking and discrimination. Such behaviour is not acceptable under any circumstances and will not be tolerated at the Uva.

Employees and students generally respect each other's boundaries. However, if this is not the case and you feel that you are being harassed you should immediately make it clear that you will not accept the behaviour. Sometimes this can be difficult, in which case it may be advisable to get help from a fellow student or a lecturer.

You can also get support from one of the University's confidential advisers for undesirable behaviour. In addition, the UvA has complaints regulations and a Complaints Committee for students and staff.

On this page you can find UvA's Code of Conduct and instructions on what to do in case you experience such behaviour. Also you can find the contact information of the confidential advisors for undesirable behaviour. They can help you figure out what to do.
