Off-Campus UROP & Travel Overseas
In most cases UROP research takes place on-campus in a faculty member’s lab or center. However, there may be cases where a student’s research leads them off-campus, to an affiliated area hospital, field research station, abroad, etc.
The stipulations for off-campus UROP research is 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.).
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.
