Staying in Touch

Where do I get help?

While abroad, the staff at your host institution will be your primary contact for any on-site issues. Of course, you are welcome to contact your UNC Study Abroad Advisor with general questions or issues relating to UNC. Don’t forget to refer to your Heels Abroad Handbook too!

Experiencing an emergency abroad? Call UNC Public Safety at +1 919-962-8100, any time, from anywhere in the world.


Tag us with #HeelsAbroad to show us what you’re up to! We love to see snapshots of your time abroad. Find us on social media using the icons at the top of the page.


We love hearing updates from students abroad! Let us know how you are doing! We love to hear about your experiences. This also helps us better advise students and shape programs in the future. Look out for a program evaluation form upon your return.
