Using the new NYU Traveler

When you register a trip, NYU's Department of Public Safety can reach out to help you in case of an emergency at your destination. Before you go, we can alert you when weather or labor strikes might disrupt your itinerary. While you are away, we can establish contact when a local incident might impact you. Share your plans on NYU Traveler so our team can connect with you in critical moments.

How to Register Your Travel

The new NYU Traveler is easier to use than ever: registering is easy as 1, 2, or 3.

1. If you booked your trip through Egencia or Nirvana (NYU Abu Dhabi), you’re all set — registration in NYU Traveler is automatic!

2. If you booked your travel anywhere else, just forward your confirmation email to mytrip@nyu.edu (refer to our tips on the right side of the screen).

3. If you prefer to enter your trip manually, you can submit your itinerary online.

Your Privacy

NYU Traveler is part of the university’s emergency response services; our goal is to prepare travelers, to provide assistance promptly when we can, and to help the NYU community safely navigate the world.

When you register a trip, details are private and confidential. You will receive safety and weather alerts from our automated system, which tracks developments around the world. The platform alerts our dedicated Public Safety team when incidents occur where community members may be present. Only in these cases, and depending on the scale and severity, a Public Safety administrator reviews your travel information and attempts to establish contact to check in on your safety.
