It is important to remember that crime can occur anywhere at any time, even while on campus. There are strategies to reduce a traveler’s susceptibility to becoming a victim of crime, but no precautions can prevent all crime.
Travel Advisories & Advisory Reports
While crime can occur anywhere, there are locations that experience more or less crime than other areas. We encourage travelers to review the U.S. Department of State Travel Travel Advisory for their destination country or countries to understand potential concerns with crime. Another option to learn more is by reading the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) Country Report for each destination country by using the Region Locator search on the right-hand side of the OSAC website.
