Contact Us

Thank you for looking for ways to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you. Information below about ways to contact us and how those methods can support our desire to offer confidential service.

  • Confidential Intake Form: the best way to ensure your confidentiality when contacting us is to fill out our Confidential Intake Form, which is hosted on a non-KU, third-party server.
  • Phone: You may phone the Ombuds Office to set up a time to meet with one of ombuds. If you choose to call, in order to protect your identify we recommend you call us with the prefix *67 before calling us. That way your phone number will be unknown and not leave a record in university systems. You can dial *67 785-864-7261.

    As we do not have full-time administrative staff to answer phones you may need to leave a message, or choose to email us instead.

  • Voicemail: Please know that the KU voicemail system will transcribe all messages and convey them to us in an email. We recommend leaving a brief message with your call back information and name or pseudonym. In conformity with our practice of not keeping records of our visits or visitor information, we do delete emails after a brief time.
  • Email: Although email is not appropriate for confidential communications, you may email us if you so choose. Please send the minimal amount of information needed. 


Due to the confidential, neutral, informal and independent function of the Ombuds Office, communication with the office does not constitute notice to the University.
