Are you planning an international trip or project?

ITS is available to consult with community members who are planning trips and/or projects outside the U.S. to ensure that best practices for computing and communication are understood. Please visit the global traveler technology checklist page to review some of the most common considerations for travelling internationally with technology.
Help us help you! ITS requests that you:

  • share your plans and technology needs with ITS as early as possible, since research into technology solutions in other countries takes time. We can help you set reasonable expectations for meeting your technology needs and that works best if you include ITS from the start.

  • give us ongoing feedback regarding the recommendations we provide. This allows ITS to continue to build an understanding of what works and what doesn't in each location.

You are our best source of information about global operations and related technology needs. Please send any feedback or questions about ITS resources to or call 001-802-443-2200.
