Welcome

This database allows us to track where and when students are abroad so that we can offer them emergency assistance.

For students:

In order to be registered with the Safety Abroad Office before you travel on a U of T activity you must complete the following:

  1. Waivers: Provided by your department administrator or the program that is sending you abroad
  2. Safety Abroad Database
  3. Pre-departure Orientation Session: Session can be found via http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/cie/safety-abroad
  4. Get Supplementary Travel Health Insurance

In order for your Safety Abroad profile to be considered complete you must fill in your passport information, health insurance information and emergency contact information.

Emergencies:

Students participating in University-sanctioned international activities have access to Safety Abroad Office (SAO) emergency services. The SAO works closely with various Student Life offices and the High Risk team to provide you with supports while overseas and can assist you if you need to return home.

In case of emergency abroad, call the CIE at 416-946-3929 or reach us at the 24-hour collect Emergency line via Campus Police at 416-978-2222.

For Staff:

Staff members must have a profile created for them by the Safety Abroad Office. Once we have completed your profile we will send you the "How to" tutorial on registering students on the database. Staff must ensure that all students’ profiles have the necessary information completed before their departure. Namely, passport information, health insurance information and emergency contact information.
