Complaints and Student Disciplinary procedures 
The  University of Sussex Complaints and Student Disciplinary procedures can be found here.

The submission of a Complaint or Student Discipline report means that someone has asked the University to investigate an incident or behaviour which may have breached the University of Sussex regulation linked to student behaviour. If a review of this report suggests that this regulation has been breached, a fair investigation will take place, led by a trained and independent member of University staff. 

We will not ordinarily inform other people outside of this process that an allegation has been made. We will tell you if such a person needs to be informed. We will not however, disclose any details of the allegation to those outside of this process. 


There are two ways you can tell us what happened
