Emergency Management

The UK International Center works closely with UK’s senior administration and offices across campus to implement crisis management and communication plans. In the event of an emergency, the University takes swift action to account for its registered travelers abroad, and to assist them. Before you depart, please remember these important points: 

  • In the event of a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or other significant incident in your destination country, the International Center may reach out to you via e-mail or text message. Please be on the lookout for such messages, and respond to them promptly. 

  • If you urgently need to contact the University, the best way to do so is by dialing the UK Police Department at 859-257-8573. They will route your call to the appropriate person on campus.
