Research Safety in the Field

For information and planning your field research project, visit the UCHICAGO Travel Toolkit

The Toolkit provides assistance to University faculty, students and staff for travel planning and managing a project or research abroad. Whether you are traveling to a laboratory at a partner institution or conducting research abroad, we aim to provide the tools and information necessary to enhance your safety, reduce risks, and prepare you for a seamless journey.

If you are planning to travel, please register on UChicago Traveler, which is a secure website to register international travel plans and contact information. UChicago Traveler allows the University to assist students, faculty, and staff overseas, including in emergencies or times of crisis. Register your University-affiliated travel and you are automatically enrolled in UChicago's International Travel Emergency Assistance Program.
