UF sent out a public safety alert about a reported rape at a fraternity house that occurred last weekend.

On Friday, UF issued a timely warning email to notify the campus community of the incident, which took place at an unknown fraternity house Feb. 20. Because the Campus Security Authority did not provide more information, UF has been unable to take action, according to the alert.

The university is required to send out “timely warning messages” under the Clery Act — a federal law that requires universities to notify students and faculty of campus threats, such as sexual assault and gun violence.

UF provided the victim with support and resources, the email read.

“The University of Florida strongly believes that no person is responsible for harm inflicted by another person,” the email read. “Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking are prohibited and will not be tolerated.”

As of 7 p.m. Sunday, UF spokesperson Steve Orlando said he does not have any additional information and the University Police Department is working on tracking the incident.
