The incidents can cause a lot of distress, often because they are carried out by someone who knows about your movements, habits, likes and dislikes and your friends and family.
Stalking behaviour might appear innocent at first, but if it keeps happening, it could mean something more sinister.
Unwanted contact can include phone calls, letters, emails, text messages, and messages on social networking sites, graffiti or sending or leaving gifts.
Some examples of stalking:
- Waiting for you
- Spying on you
- Approaching you
- Going to your home.
Stalking is contrary to the University’s Harassment and Bullying Procedure.
