Services at the Student Life Student Health Services (SLSHS):

  • Services for victims of sexual assault are provided by SLSHS regardless of the duration of time since the assault occurred.
  • If the sexual assault occurred within the last 96 hours, you will be encouraged to seek care at the hospital where evidence can be collected.  This does not require you to press charges.
  • If you choose to be seen at SLSHS, evidence will not be collected.  Concerns about sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy will be addressed, as well as a discussion of resources and a plan for follow-up care.
