International Safety and Security’s interest regarding travel abroad is not limited solely to university-related travel. We value all members of our university community and want you to enjoy safe and productive travel abroad, whatever the reason for the trip. While International Safety and Security cannot assume responsibility or liability for any advice related to personal travel, we encourage travelers to explore the resources on our website and are available for consultations on personal travel.
Definition of Personal Travel
Personal travel is travel abroad for personal reasons not associated with employment or education abroad activities with the university.
Travel before or after education abroad programs for sightseeing, visiting friends or family, or other interests is considered personal travel. The university, its agents, and its education abroad program are not responsible or liable for any occurrences during such travel. Students participating in personal travel are strongly encouraged to purchase additional travel insurance to cover those periods.
