For Department Coordinators: Off-Campus UROP & Travel Overseas
In most cases UROP research takes place on-campus in a faculty member';s lab or center. However, there are cases where a student research leads off-campus to an affiliated area hospital, field research station, abroad, etc. The stipulations for off-campus UROP research are as follows:
- Students must indicate the location of the research facilities in their UROP proposal
- Students must be working in/with an MIT affiliated laboratory or facility and their off-site research must have a connection to MIT and be supervised by an MIT affiliate (faculty member, researcher, grad students, etc.).
UROP-Related Travel Requirements
In addition, students should indicate any potential travel in the appropriate section on their online UROP application and in the text of their UROP proposal.
Please note: travel paperwork only applies to travel related to UROP positions and does not include personal excursions, vacations, trips home, etc.
