If you’ve been raped or sexually assaulted, or if think you have been but aren’t sure, it’s your decision whether you file a report or not. If there is a chance you’ll want to report the incident, either now or in the near future, evidence should be collected within 96 hours of the incident. Evidence can be collected at any hospital emergency department (locally at UHS Binghamton General Hospital or Lourdes Hospital).
If you choose to report the sexual assault, there are various options available to you, listed below. Some of these options require you to provide your name and contact information; in some cases this information can be kept confidential if you request it.
*NOTE: If the assault happened off campus and you report it to the University Police, officers will assist you and take your report. However, they must refer you to the police department that has jurisdiction where the assault occurred. That police department will perform the investigation.
