Students involved in disciplinary cases may seek support and advice from the Student Health Counselling and the Student Ombudsman at Lund University Student Unions (if the case involves a first or second cycle student) or the Doctoral Student Ombudsman (if the case involves a doctoral student).
Should you file a report, feel free to inform the student in question about these opportunities for support. Contact information for the Student Health Service, the Student Ombudsman and the Doctoral Student Ombudsman can be found under “Contact”.
