Hospital Sexual Assault Exam

University of Minnesota Medical Center — Riverside  provides sexual assault exams by specially trained female nurses.  Just go to the ER (located on Riverside Avenue, across from the Augsburg chapel; 612-273-6402) and let them know that you want a sexual assault evidentiary exam.  They will contact a sexual assault advocate from the Aurora Center to accompany you during your exam.  The sexual assault exam can be performed up to 120 hours after a sexual assault, but is most successful for evidentiary purposes within the first 24 hours.  The evidentiary exam is something to consider if there is any chance you may want to report the assault to the police now or in the future.

Counseling & Health Promotion

On campus, CCHP counselors provide counseling support to students who have experienced sexual assault and stalking, and can help you connect to services through the Aurora Center and other community resources.  CCHP also helps students to access information and support for the campus sexual assault reporting process (if that is something you want to consider), and will help connect you with resources for self-care and safety on campus.  All counseling services at CCHP are confidential so none of your information will be shared with anyone without your permission.

Off Campus Counseling & Support

There are more resources in the community, including other 24/7 support lines, support groups, and specialized counseling for survivors of sexual assault.
