FAQ’s

We have two locations: Student Services Building, Room 328 and the Student Life Center, Suite 2100. Free and confidential Victim-Survivor Advocacy services are located in the Student Services Building. Condom sales, HIV testing, wellness coaching and other wellness education is found in the Student Life Center.

You came to the right place! Supporting friends can be challenging at times. Please contact our office and one of our staff can talk to you about campus resources, methods to communicate with your friend, and how to practice self-care. In the meantime, you can submit an anonymous tip to the Office of the Dean of Students and their CARE team will contact your friend for a wellness check. Learn more about CARE and you can also get submit a tip through the SafeUT app.

Any student, staff, or faculty member at the U are eligible for our Victim-Survivor Advocacy program. All of our other services (e.g., STI testing, wellness coaching, etc) are only for students.

Most employees of the U are mandatory reporters under Title IX. This means that if a student discloses they have been a victim of sexual or domestic/dating violence, stalking or sexual harrassment the employee must report it to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action

Our Victim-Survivor Advocates (and other staff of the CSW) are confidential which means that what you disclose to them does NOT constitute a report to the Title IX office or law enforcement. We will keep information and conversations with our clients private and confidential. No information is shared with anyone outside of the Center for Student Wellness without your written permission. You can choose as much or as little as you’d like to disclose to your Victim-Survivor Advocate.

As required by law, there are a few standard exceptions where we may break confidentiality: disclosures of active or suspected abuse, neglect or exploitation of children, elders or vulnerable adults; threats or cases of imminent danger to others; and for certain crimes that occur on campus property, limited information about the type, location and date of crime. You can always ask your advocate if you have questions about confidentiality and decide how to proceed.

Believe and listen to the person. Tell them about our Victim-Survivor Advocacy program and offer to support them in accessing our services. If they are not ready to seek professional support, that’s OK. Let them know that it is completely their decision and should they change their mind, you are available to support them when they’re ready.

If you are a University of Utah employee, you are required to report disclosures to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (OEO). Click below to submit a report. Tell the person who disclosed to you that you must report the information to OEO. OEO will ensure they have access to resources (often times, OEO has our VSAs reach out first). Let them know that an investigation will not be started without their consent.

Our Victim-Survivor Advocates support students, faculty and staff who have experienced (or are experiencing) any type of interpersonal violence. This can be stalking, dating or domestic violence, sexual harassment or exploitation, sexual assault, rape, etc.

While we offer mobile STI testing and flu shot clinics, we do not provide other medical care. That being said, if you are in need of medical assistance and do not know who to contact, please contact us and we will help you find the right medical center for you!

We offer free mobile flu shot clinics in the fall in partnership with the Student Health Center! Check out our events page to find the next clinic. If you missed one of these free clinics, the Student Health Center can still provide a free flu shot with an appointment. You can also receive a flu shot from local pharmacies or other medical providers at an affordable (and sometimes free) cost.

There are multiple options for free or affordable testing in the community. Contact the Utah AIDS Foundation, Planned Parenthood, or the Department of Health to learn more.
