40 per cent of sexual assaults at Warwick occur in The Copper Rooms

As revealed by The Tab’s recent sexual assault survey

Responses to The Tab Warwick's recent Sexual Assault Survey, found that of those who said that they had been sexually harassed or assaulted, 40 per cent of them occurred in Warwick SU's very own Copper Rooms.

Victims told us their stories, from physical assault such as groping, to verbal assault such as telling someone, "I would bang that", or even rating people out of 10.

Victims explain that other students, both men and women, often give unwanted attention even after being told "no". Many Warwick students, particularly girls, suggest that they go on a night out with the expectation that they will be sexually harassed in some way.

Perhaps the most shocking thing of all is that 40 per cent of those who told us their stories had experienced sexual assault on Warwick campus, in our SU club.

Warwick SU responded to these findings, "Warwick SU has a zero-tolerance approach to all instances of sexual harassment and assault. If a student or visitor ever experiences this in one of our venues, we would encourage them to report it immediately to a member of the security staff, who will treat it with the utmost seriousness and take the appropriate action.

"All clubs and societies undergo awareness training to help make our community as welcoming and inclusive as possible. We are also determined to stamp out this sort of behaviour at the root, which is why we launched our #WeGetConsent campaign this year – for more information about how we're addressing sexual violence on campus and beyond, please visit www.warwicksu.com/consent."
