If you are being subjected to undesirable behaviour (such as sexual harassment, aggression, violence or discrimination) or suspect an infringement of academic integrity you can turn to one of the confidential advisers.

Together with the confidential adviser you will discuss the problem and look for possible solutions. It is also possible to submit a complaint to the Complaints Committee set up for this purpose. Measures can be taken against the accused through the Complaints Procedure for Unacceptable Behaviour.

The confidential adviser:
- provides information on undesirable behaviour
- guides the complainant and provides him or her with advice
- tries to find a solution for the problem through mediation and/or to end the undesirable behaviour
- supports the complainant in the process of submitting a complaint to the Complaints Committee
