Rape and/or Sexual Assault Resources

Rape and/or Sexual Assault

Normal Business Hours

If you are a female who has been raped or sexually assaulted, come to Women’s Health on the second floor of the Student Health Center. If you are a male who has been raped or sexually assaulted, come to the Medical Clinic on the first floor of the Student Health Center.  We will prioritize your visit. You may bring a friend with you, if you wish.

We will ask if you wish to press criminal charges. We will not try to persuade you in your decision, but we will discuss the available options. If you wish to press charges, Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) Center at The Solace Center must collect evidence within 120 hours. Survivors age 16 and older and have no injuries that require medical attention are eligible for services.  In order to preserve evidence, do not change your clothes, shower, bathe, douche, or brush your teeth. Save the clothing you wore during the assault in a paper bag or pillowcase. Do not disturb the location where the assault occurred.

Student Health Services will perform STI (sexually transmitted infection) tests and treatment for exposure at no cost. If you are concerned about pregnancy, emergency contraception plan B is available at the Student Health Pharmacy.

During your appointment, Student Health providers will review available campus resources with you, including the Counseling Center. If you would like to see a counselor, we will help you make an appointment. The NC State’s Women’s Center also offers confidential support to survivors of sexual and relationship violence including stalking. An appointment can be made by calling 919.515.2012. We want to empower you in the wake of this event.

If you do not feel comfortable coming to Student Health, The Solace Center also provides care for those who have been sexually assaulted. The Solace Center can be reached at 919.828.3067.
