Sexual misconduct and harassment have no place at our University. We are taking very seriously recent accusations that were made on social media relating to the Oxford Brookes University Rugby Football Club.

The post indicates that a crime may have been committed. If this is accurate, then our priority is to ensure that any victims receive the care and support they need, and to ensure that the accusation is investigated properly and thoroughly.

So far, no evidence has been received which would substantiate the statement made in the post.

We are therefore appealing for anyone with evidence or information about the alleged incident to come forward. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence. If you wish to submit information about this, or if you wish to tell us about anything else, you can contact
