Emergency contacts

This e-form can be used by students to report emergency contact information to ISSS.  The form provides four different contact types:

  • Departmental
  • Faculty Sponsor
  • Foreign Emergency
  • U.S. Emergency

ISSS will process any contact type, but is particularly interested in Foreign (living outside the U.S.) and U.S. (living in the U.S.) contacts. Emergency contacts may be friends, relatives, roommates, etc.

Once you have logged in to iSSS BU Client Services, the e-form is found under "Administrative Services" in the "iSSS BU Home Page" block.

The top section of the e-form provides instructions for completing the form.
