National Student Safety Survey 2021

Thank you for your participation in the 2021 National Student Safety Survey. This survey has now closed and the results can be found here. The Vice Chancellor and President’s response to Bond University’s results from the survey can be found here.

The National Student Safety Survey makes an important contribution to student safety. The Social Research Centre (SRC) is running the NSSS on behalf of all Australian universities to help us understand what is happening on our campus, and what we need to do to support all students.

This is the second national survey run by the university sector. It is a central part of our commitment to reduce sexual assault and sexual harassment under the Respect. Now. Always. campaign.

All eligible students will be invited to participate in the survey, which will be open from Monday 1 November to Sunday 28 November. 

Bond University’s work to address and respond to sexual violence needs to be shaped by your voice, your experiences and your needs.

It is important that we hear about the full range of students’ experiences. This means hearing from people of different ages, sexualities, genders, cultures, degree pathways, modes of study and countries of origin. We want to hear from you, whether or not you have experienced sexual violence, coercion or harassment of any kind.

No matter your circumstances, your views or experiences, your participation is welcomed. All responses are completely anonymous and confidential.

There are a number of support services available at Bond University for survivors of sexual assault and misconduct. Help is available to you at Bond University and in the broader community. We are here to support you without judgement. Click the button below to view the service options.



We are all responsible for ensuring our campus is safe and respectful environments. We all have a role to play in the prevention of sexual misconduct. Ensure you have the knowledge and skills to make consensual relationships, intervene when witnessing sexual misconduct and help a survivor.

It is the survivor's right to choose whether to report rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment.

Many survivors who decide to report do not do so immediately.  It is never too late to make a report or to seek help from Bond University, community groups or the police.
