Colgate University contracts with International SOS
to provide worldwide assistance and evacuation services for all study abroad participants and overseas travelers.
Before and during your time abroad, we advise that you review up-to-date reports on safety and security, health issues, medical care, and vaccination requirements for the country where you will be studying. These are available on the SOS website
You will receive a wallet card, which contains the Colgate University group membership number and the Alarm Center phone numbers. You should carry this card at all times when you are abroad. If you are on a Colgate study group or extended study you will receive your card before beginning your travels, either from the off-campus study office or your faculty director.
All other travelers can request a card from the off-campus study office, or download a printable version of the card by logging on to the Colgate SOS Portal
The Colgate SOS Portal contains an online Personal Travel Record for inputting information on your travel during your period abroad.
We strongly encourage all travelers to complete the form so that this information is available to SOS and Colgate University should you need to be located in the event of a crisis or emergency. If your travel plans change, remember to update the information on the Travel Record.
You can access the Colgate SOS Portal by logging on using the Colgate member number 11BSGC000073
