IF YOU ARE IN DANGER, NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION, OR NEED EMERGENCY HELP, CALL 911 NOW.
Safe Harbor is committed to reducing sexual assault, rape, and violence against all students by providing bystander intervention prevention based initiatives. Students of Auburn University can use Safe Harbor free of charge. Advocates in our program provide support and reassurance to students who are survivors of intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual assault and rape.
In Addition, advocates provide resources for crisis intervention, safety planning, and information to the survivor throughout the recovery process. These services may include medical, legal, counseling, judicial, and academic accommodations. This process is completely survivor-centered, meaning that only the survivor decides what resources they need to begin their recovery.
If a survivor chooses, counseling is available free of charge to Auburn students who are survivors of sexual assault and/or sexual violence, Student Counseling Services can be reached at 334.844.5123. Safe Harbor is confidential: parents will not be notified, nor are advocates permitted to discuss your case with anyone without your permission. Advocates are campus security authorities and report crimes anonymously, required by the Clery Act.
We are located in the Health Promotion and Wellness Services Office:
2103 Student Center
