What do I do if sexual harassment or rape took place off university campus?

This is still a university issue and needs to be addressed. Whether this was with a fellow university student, or with a person who does not attend university, this still needs to be reported to your university and needs to be reported to the police as well. Just because this was not experienced on a university campus, does not mean that this is not still a university issue. You need to report this, all the same, geographical locations don’t factor in a university’s duty of care.
