Please find below travel-related guidance for the fall semester for undergraduate students. We encourage you to review these guidelines and to reach out to [email protected] with specific questions that are not addressed below.
- Brown-Sponsored Travel: Brown has extended the suspension of all international and domestic travel organized, sponsored by or supported by the University, through January 3, 2021. All undergraduate students are prohibited from travel as part of any University-sponsored program. This includes travel for all academic programs, student organizations and Brown research. Find more information on this policy.
- Personal Travel Guidance: Brown strongly urges all members of the University community, including students, to avoid all non-essential personal travel to international and domestic destinations, and to minimize off-campus activity to the greatest extent possible. Students who plan to travel to their home residence, and who will remain at their residence and not return to campus, are exempt from this guidance. The University is unable to support the health, safety, travel and academic needs of community members on personal travel.
Brown follows the guidelines for COVID-19 travel restrictions set forth by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) regarding return to Rhode Island from international and domestic travel. For domestic travel, return from states with a community spread rate of higher than 5% as set forth on a list maintained by RIDOH must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test (review any applicable exceptions on the Rhode Island Department of Health website).
