Hate crime online reporting

What is hate crime?

Hate crimes are any crimes that are targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person’s:

  • disability
  • race or ethnicity
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation
  • transgender identity

This can be committed against a person or property.
A victim does not have to be a member of the group at which the hostility is targeted. In fact, anyone could be a victim of a hate crime.


Queen Mary's Report and Support webpages provide more information about hate crime and incidents, including details of specialist external organisations who can help.

You can use Report and Support to do any or all of the following:

  • Let the University know about your experience (and help inform future prevention work).
  • Request suppport from the Advice and Counselling Service to discuss support and what you would like to do next.
  • Request formal action (such as a Univeristy investigation).

Stop Hate UK has a dedicated helpline for anyone at Queen Mary affected by hate incidents or hate crime.
