Sexual assault reported in university residence hall

The university has not released the exact location of the sexual assault reported on campus; however, a crime warning sent to students today said it took place in a southeast residence hall.

A sexual assault is reported to have occurred in a southeast residence hall on Sunday, according to a university crime warning. The victim and offender were confirmed to know each other. 

The incident was not reported to campus police, and there is no open police investigation as of Monday. 

"These acts will not be tolerated on campus and may be a violation of Wisconsin law as well as the student code of conduct," the university stated in an email sent to students. "UW-Madison proactively addresses sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual harassment and sexual exploitation."

Marc Lovicott, the director of communications for the University of Wisconsin Police Department, reiterated this, highlighting that this incident is being handled by the Sexual Misconduct Resource and Response Program, formally known as the Title IX program, at this time.
