Travel safety

As a key element of supporting the safety of members of the Concordia community while abroad, we strongly encourage any Concordia student travelling outside of Canada to register their trip in the International Travel Registry. (You can also find the link to submit travel details on My CU Account in Carrefour and the Student Hub.) The registry allows the university to know where Concordia students are when travelling outside of Canada on Concordia business, and to be able to provide emergency assistance if needed.
