NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Ninety students, faculty and interns studying or working in London this summer were accounted for and unharmed on Thursday after attacks on the city‘s public transportation system.

Students were urged to contact their parents. Computers and land telephone lines were made available to them.

Many of the students were staying together in a dormitory, easing the process of confirming their whereabouts, Vanderbilt officials said.

Plans call for the students to continue with their programs and internships.

Forty-two students are taking part in the International Studies in London program, and 26 in the Humanities in London program. There are 11 interns sent by the Human and Organizational Development program at Vanderbilt‘s Peabody College.

Also in London are two student assistants and nine faculty members coordinating the programs.
