The Violence, Abuse and Rape Crisis Center (VARCC) is housed in a centrally located but calm, private space on the third floor of Old Johnson Hall where it provides a single place for students — or anyone — to report an incident of sexual violence.
The VARCC has a Safe Space. This area is for people who have experienced interpersonal violence including sexual violence, where they can come together in a relaxed atmosphere to talk, use therapeutic art supplies, listen to music, do homework, and generally just chill together. Allies we love you, but please respect this is a space only for those identified above.
Services provided from the VARCC:
- Sexual assault advocate
- Deputy Title IX coordinator
- Bystander training coordinator
- Office of Student Conduct
- Residence Life
- University Police Department, BPD/University Liaison, NYS Investigator (and other jurisdictions)
- Crime Victims Assistance Center (CVAC)
- Counselor specializing in trauma recovery

During the pandemic, not all of the offices will staff the center full time, but will rotate through and people will be pulled in as needed so students can meet with them at one time.
