Safety Abroad Database Instructions for Students
Please note that in some browsers, the database may not appear to be a secure website. Make sure that your browser enables you to access it. For more details, email email@example.com.
To log on, you must first be registered in the database. Please contact your activity sponsor (e.g., your research supervisor or program coordinator) to ensure that an account has been set up for you.
Your username is your student number. Your password is your date of birth (dd/mm/yy)
Please note that you will be asked to update your password the first time you register. Once you have updated your password (the fields will go blank and at the bottom of the screen a message will tell you that the update was successful), please return to the log-in screen and log back in with the new password. Record the new password in a secure place.
To successfully update your personal information, you will be required to enter information in all the required fields (marked with *). It may be necessary to update information while abroad. Please update the database with local information (i.e., telephone number, address) as early as possible.
Information Updates and Emergency Assistance
This information is used to assist the Safety Abroad Office in managing the University out-of-country programs. Periodically, it may be necessary for the university to communicate with you regarding health and safety issues and/ or updates abroad. Similarly, students that have registered with the Safety Abroad Database may contact the Safety Advisor in an emergency.
To initiate our safety abroad emergency plan, please contact campus police, providing them with your name, student number, telephone number where you can be reached and a brief description regarding the reason for the call. The appropriate staff member will call you back as early as possible.
Students may also use this information while abroad. Please note, however, students may not be able to log on to certain computers, particularly those that do not meet the browser requirements.
If you would like more information on how the information is used or stored in the database is used please contact the safety abroad advisor.
IMPORTANT!! Don't forget to update your local contact information while abroad.
Safety is not necessarily about knowing site-specific details for each place you travel to. Safety is about knowing the right questions to ask and what to be aware of. Come to our sessions and discover the ins and outs of travelling abroad.
