Manchester, England Update

May 22, 2017 - Ohio State is monitoring the tragic incident at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Ohio State has two known student travelers with current itineraries in Manchester, and both have checked in safe. None of Ohio State's group programs currently in the United Kingdom are in Manchester at this time and are not scheduled to travel there as part of their itineraries. The university has initiated contact with the faculty and staff leading those programs to check-in with students.

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 Manchester through the advice of the Department of State, the Overseas Security Advisory Council, the Greater Manchester Police and the university's security providers.
