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.
Register all trips during the academic year, including study away, travel for conferences, and travel plans with friends unrelated to class. Register your trip to a study away global site — for example, your flight to Madrid at the start of the semester — as well as weekend travel to other cities during your semester abroad.
Register university-related travel, including conferences, research trips, and travel to our global sites (unless your travel administrator has booked the trip and completed registration).
Including currency tips, transportation overview, and cultural norms
Delivered the day before departure, as applicable, highlighting travel warnings
Email alerts during your trip in case of local incidents
If we become aware of local unrest, we may attempt to establish contact and provide support
We’ll email if weather events could disrupt your itinerary
NYU Traveler was redesigned in 2019, so it is now easier than ever to use
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.
