International Student Emergency Contact Form

The CIE Office strongly encourages all international students to submit an Emergency Contact Form, which includes the contact information of a family member in your home country. It is OK if the emergency contact doesn't speak English.

Update your international emergency contact information here.

UW Bothell has the CARE Team. This is a safe and secure way to inform the campus that you are concerned about the well-being of others, such as a friend, classmate, roommate, professor or staff member.
