June 3, 2017 - Ohio State is monitoring the tragic incident(s) on London Bridge and Borough Market in London. Ohio State has two known education abroad programs with current itineraries in London, and leadership of those programs have confirmed the participants well-being away from the location of the incidents. In addition, there are Ohio State students studying on non-Ohio State programs, and we have reached out to those students and their programs.
 
Several other Ohio State programs with travel in London recently concluded, and we are aware that many participants extended their travels. The university has initiated contact with the known students, faculty and staff with itineraries extended beyond the program dates to verify everyone’s well-being.
 
Travelers are reminded of advice and protocol for preparation and response to security incidents in their local context. Ohio State will continue to monitor the events in London through the advice of the Department of State, the Overseas Security Advisory Council, the London Metropolitan Police and the university's security providers.
