We’re Here to Help

The Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre is here to help and support students, staff and faculty at the University of Toronto who have been affected by sexual violence or sexual harassment.

We’re here to help you understand, access and navigate supports such as counselling, medical services, academic or workplace accommodations, financial aid and legal aid.

The Centre also works to end sexual violence on campus through training and education. Contact us to find out more.

This short video provides a quick overview of the Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre and what we do. It describes how we support the University of Toronto community (students, staff, faculty and librarians) on all three campuses, what to expect when someone reaches out to us, and how to contact us.

Operational Update: October 13, 2021

We are open and available to provide support to members of our community. We remain dedicated to ensuring our services are accessible to the University community.

Please note, we are continuing to provide services remotely through phone and video conferencing. Any requests for in-person appointments or meetings will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We are not accepting in-person, drop-in appointments at this time.

All our programming and workshop for Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 will continue to be offered virtually.

Our Centre hours remain the same, Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. To access support, we request that you e-mail svpscentre@utoronto.ca, or call 416-978-2266 to leave a voicemail and request an appointment.

All information regarding the University’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its requirements to be on campus can be found on the University of Toronto website. Please also refer to the Frequently Asked Questions from the U of T community about COVID-19 which are regularly updated.

We encourage our community to check this website frequently for up-to-date information.
