An Oxford college is the first to sign up to a government-backed pledge on ending non-disclosure agreements in cases of sexual misconduct.
Lady Margaret Hall at Oxford University was previously accused of trying to prevent a student from speaking out about being raped.
Interim principal Prof Christine Gerrard said it was important that victims could report such attacks.
The college is also reviewing its reporting procedures for sexual harassment and sexual violence.
The review will be led by a working party of student representatives and independent specialists in consultation with the anti-sexual violence group It Happens Here.
