Notre Dame London students accounted for after attack

| Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Notre Dame has confirmed the safety of its 167 students currently studying abroad in London following a terrorist attack Wednesday near the British Houses of Parliament and Westminster bridge, according to a University press release.

Nine students were interning with the Parliament during the time of the attack, according to the release. Many of the other students were at the University’s London Global Gateway, located in Marian Kennedy Fischer Hall near Trafalgar Square, or Conway Hall, Notre Dame’s residential facility located near Waterloo Station and King’s College London.

Additionally, all students from other study abroad programs who registered their travel plans with Notre Dame International have been accounted for and are safe, University spokesman Dennis Brown said in an email.

Saint Mary’s did not have any students in London this semester, and the College confirmed the safety of all students studying in Europe this semester that may have been traveling in London at the time of the attack, director of the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership Mana Derakhshani said in an email Thursday.
