Hate crime

Our strength is in our diversity. Everyone should feel safe and welcome at the University of Hull.

A hate crime is any crime that is targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. And it has no place on our campus.

Hate incidents and hate crime are acts of violence or hostility directed at people because of who they are - or who someone thinks they are.

Hate crime isn’t just physical abuse or violence. Name-calling, blackmail, harassment, intimidation, bullying or exploitation are all forms of hate crime too.

We know that developments around coronavirus (COVID-19) are concerning and may cause disruption to your studies. Student Services remain open and as always, we’re here to help and support you.
