USF strongly recommends that you always travel with a cell phone that can make and
receive international calls using a cell network, independently of WiFi. However,
calling to the U.S. from abroad can be tricky when using a landline. Find useful tips
and tricks to keep in touch while abroad here.
The USF International Assistance Line is a dedicated phone number that can be called
direct, or collect, from anywhere in the world. It is monitored every day, 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year to support all members of the USF community
who are traveling globally on University business or through Education Abroad. Read
more about this service here.
If you are in an emergency situation abroad, you will need to know how to contact
the police, an ambulance, or even the fire department. Not every country uses “911”
as its emergency contact number, as we do in the United States. Find information on
how and when to contact authorities and emergency services while abroad in this section.
Reporting any and all crime that may occur abroad to proper USF authorities is extremely important. In this section, read about what may constitute a crime, as well as how, when, and to whom to report at USF. Resources available to victims are also discussed here.
