MIT is piloting a Travel Registry system that allows you to record your trip details and contact information, which helps foster communication and provide information about traveler location in the case of an incident.
All MIT students, faculty, staff, and affiliates with a Kerberos account have access to the Travel Registry. Registration allows travel registry administrators to identify the potentially affected travelers during an incident, and contact them to verify their well-being. The registry will also be used to send travel notices and advisories to registered travelers.
Who should register?
Registration is encouraged for all MIT business and academic travel, particularly to destinations with MIT International Travel Risk Policy warnings. Students participating in certain organized programs are required to register their MIT sponsored or financed off-campus travel and should contact their program manager/administrator for more information on how to register their trip.
If you are a student program administrator who has never registered travel in the MIT Registry before, please contact the registry administrators.
Should I record my trip information anywhere else?
While the Travel Registry serves as the main collection point within MIT for travel information, all travelers, whether U.S. citizens or not, are encouraged to sign up in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) offered by the U.S. State Department. Enrollment in STEP will enable the U.S. embassies at your travel destinations to send you safety information that can impact your trip.
