London, Ont. –
Western University is looking into alleged incidents of gender-based or sexual violence in a student residence.
In a letter sent out to Medway-Sydenham Hall residents, coordinator Jacob Clarke says, “We are currently following up with information – that has come forward and will be utilizing campus and community resources such as campus safety and emergency services and London Police Services as needed. We wish to ensure that follow up occurs with anyone who has experienced harm.”
