Travel to “High Risk” Destinations

Health and Safety

When the US State Department issues a “Travel Warning” for a country or area, student travel to that specific area is suspended. Students may appeal the warning by following the Appeal Process document. Please click on "Warnings" to the left to see whether your destination has a State Department Travel Warning. 

The safety and security of all CU Denver faculty, staff and students is our highest priority. While international travel is generally quite safe, there are destinations that pose particular challenges. As a benchmark, the university carefully considers US State Department travel advisories, and other credible sources. The State Department provides advice that assumes travelers are responsible adults, making decisions about their own determination of essential needs and personal safety. The State Department does not prevent US citizens from traveling, (excepting travel to nations with US trade sanctions). 

We urge all travelers to carefully research the health, safety, and security situation in their intended travel destinations. In addition to the US State Department, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, and the Australia Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade also offer excellent advice to travelers. Ultimately, all travelers are responsible for their own choices related to their personal safety and security.
