    Here to help

    Tayler Simon introduces you to the SAVIP office, a free, accessible, inclusive and confidential resource for survivors, bystanders and advocates.

Interpersonal Violence

Like all communities, the University of South Carolina experiences interpersonal violence, including sexual assault, harassment, stalking and relationship violence. The university strives to prevent interpersonal violence and support anyone who has been subjected to or impacted by it. We encourage you to seek help from the resources available to you. Together, we can stop sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence.

Speak with an Advocate

Call 803-777-8248 at any time — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — or drop in to Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention & Prevention during business hours. SAVIP is located in the Thomson Building, behind the Russell House and next to the Center for Health and Well-Being. Students and faculty and staff members can talk confidentially to a trained interpersonal violence advocate.

The office's hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., during the fall and spring semesters and Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., during the summer and other breaks.

In case of an emergency, please call 911. You may also elect to call USC Police at 803-777-4215 for aid from law enforcement.


Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Support

The university offers free, accessible, inclusive and confidential support to survivors of interpersonal violence and educates members of the Carolina community so they know how to help prevent and respond to it.
