IN AN EMERGENCY

After hours:

  • Call the University Police at 911 from a campus phone or 632-3333 from a cell phone or if you are off campus.

Sexual Assault

If you are a victim of a rape or sexual assault, seek medical attention immediately.

Consider going to the SANE Center at Stony Brook University Medical Center where you can obtain confidential medical care and a forensic exam by a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. This exam is free and allows you to obtain evidence should you decide to report the incident to the police and/or press charges in the future. The SANE Center will hold the evidence for 30-days at minimum. Evidence can be collected up to 96 hours after the incident.

After 96 hours:

You can obtain confidential medical care at the Student Health Services located on Stadium Road. Their number is 632-6740.

UNDERSTAND that it is not your fault – no one deserves it or "asks" for it.

You can speak confidentially to a counselor at the Counseling and Psychological Services (632-6720) from Monday to Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Additional information about all your options (judicial, legal, campus housing, medical) can be found at the Center for Prevention and Outreach and the Wo/Men's and Gender Resource Center (632-WOMN).
You can also call The Victims Information Bureau (VIBS) 24-hour hotline at (631) 360-3606 for advise and/or an advocate to provide support for you at the SANE center and afterward.

REMEMBER: You are not alone. Utilize resources on campus and in the community.
