More than seven percent of university students surveyed said that they have experienced harassment from unidentified people on their college campuses.

The survey, which polled 601 students from over 100 Chinese universities, revealed that 7.58 percent of the respondents had experienced harassment, according to an article in Monday's edition of China Youth Daily.

Moreover, about 65.24 percent said they had heard of similar situations experienced by their classmates.

However, the article quoted some students as saying that in many cases victims dare not to directly confront their harassers and many felt ashamed to tell their families or teachers.

Students surveyed also said that enhanced security is required on university campuses. A total of 58.81 percent of the students said their campuses allow members of the public to enter freely, while 81.38 percent said universities should take measures to control entry.
