Personal Safety

We recommend that all international students take advantage of the excellent public safety services offered at MassArt. Most importantly, take time to read safety tips and all information on Public Safety's webpages. What is safe or unsafe in your home country may vary greatly from what is considered safe or unsafe here in Boston.

It is also important for international students to be aware of the increasing numbers of identity theft and scams that exist on the internet and through email. Make sure you protect your identity by shredding documents which contain personal information such as bank statements, credit card statements, and receipts. Regularly check your bank and credit card balances so that you can report any suspicious activity immediately. Protect your email address, passwords, and login information very carefully.
