Travel Registry

Northeastern University requires all students, faculty, and staff to enter their travel itinerary and housing accommodations into “My Travel Plans”, also called the travel registry. You can access the registry through “My Travel Plans” in the myNortheastern portal or directly via the GardaWorld Travel Security portal.

The university suggests travelers also register all side-trip itineraries, especially those that involve overnight accommodations away from the program destination.

The Travel Registry is an essential component of Northeastern’s continued commitment to support NU community members.  This requirement provides the university with up-to-date information on the traveler’s current and future location. The information is used to alert travelers to unanticipated events or conditions, which may create trip disruptions.  In addition, the registry data enables on-campus resources and external support providers to better assist students, faculty, and staff obtain medical or security services.

The University has a robust set of services in place to support travelers but can only do so if your location is registered and known.

All undergraduate and graduate students are required to enter a Travel Registry itinerary prior to any university travel.  Students failing to enter travel itineraries into “My Travel Plans” may be prevented from traveling, may not receive credit for the course/program, and/or may be excluded from participating in other NU global programs.
