Resources for Graduate & Professional Students

There are a variety of resources available to graduate students who experience sexual assault and gender violence, both on Washington University’s campus and in the greater St. Louis area. RSVP Center staff will be able to support you through the Center and also assist you in locating and accessing the resources most appropriate​ for your situation and needs.

Housing Accommodations

All WashU students, including graduate students, are entitled to being moved into alternate housing, regardless of whether or not they currently live in WashU housing, quadrangle housing or in private off-campus housing.


Order of Protection

The option of obtaining a court order of protection (restraining order) is available 24/7. Orders of protection require an application which must be reviewed and approved by a judge. After business hours, there is always a judge on call. WUPD or Kim Webb can help facilitate obtaining an order of protection through the court system.

For further information, contact the WUPD police department at 314-935-5555 or Kim Webb, the Director of the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention Center at 314-935-8761.
