Traveling This Summer? Safeguard Your Devices and Data

Dear Weinberg College faculty, staff and students,

As the spring quarter draws to a close, many of you are planning a summer that includes travel abroad. As you pack your bags, you will also need to make preparations to ensure that you have access to Northwestern systems and to safeguard your devices and data.

Access to Northwestern Systems While Traveling

If you won’t be traveling with the mobile phone you registered with Multi-factor Authentication, be sure to set up an alternative phone number before you leave. Without Multi-factor Authentication, you won’t be able to access many essential University systems, including NUFinancials, InfoEd, CATracks, Cognos BI, myHR Self Service, and Self-Service CAESAR.

Get more information and access guides to managing your registered phones here.

Staying Secure While Traveling

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email

Safe travels!
