Threats and risk of violence and vulnerability
University emergency hotline 20 700
The University’s emergency hotline, +46 46 222 07 00, is to be used to quickly come in contact with the University-wide security office that, during normal working hours, is responsible for taking care of sudden, unexpected incidents. Furthermore, at the University there is always an officer on call, representing the organisation outside normal working hours.
- If you feel unsafe, please call the emergency number for immediate assistance, for instance, having someone escort you to the parking lot or bus stop.
- The phone number can be found on all recently issued LU access cards, and by the entrances to all University buildings.
Crisis support for victims
It is very important that a victim is offered support from the outset. The support may be having someone to talk to about their situation. The person may need support for a long time and, if possible, continuity is to be provided by, for instance, letting the person receive support from the same person. Continuous presence is key to successful crisis support. Intervention at an early stage is always the most effective procedure in the long run, and can reduce the consequences for the victim.
If you need support, start by contacting your line manager. Alternatively, you can receive help from the University-wide security office (via the emergency hotline), the Occupational Health Service or the Student Health Centre.
It is important that the person in question is not left alone too soon. It can take a long time to process what has happened. People react differently to the same type of situation.
Contact the chief security officer for further advice.
