Obtaining a Restraining Order

Students interested in filing a restraining order should speak with UMass Lowell Police or the Victim's Advocate (for confidential support).

Community members interesting in obtaining a restraining order should work with the UMass Lowell Police Department who will guide you through the process with the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

  • Understanding Restraining Orders is explained further on the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office website, including guides in a number of different languages.
