Travel Safety

Welcome to IU's consolidated source for travel safety procedures, policies, resources and tips. This site has been designed to foster safe and satisfying trips for all members of the university community.

As a world class leader in higher education, Indiana University depends upon travel for its ongoing success.  The ability to attend conferences, visit academic peers, and experience other cultures provides a great benefit to our students, faculty, and staff. At the same time, it can present unique risks.

The information provided on the following pages will help you mitigate those risks when planning your next trip, and to address any safety issues that may arise while traveling. Use the menu on the left to browse travel safety topics, and visit the resources page for links to other useful sites.


For general travel-related questions, please contact Travel Management Services or your department head.
