Returning after International Travel

Posted by on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 in .

Vanderbilt is instructing community members who are coming to campus after international travel to self-quarantine for 14 days before arriving back on campus. Although the CDC removed this requirement from its guidance on Aug. 7, the university, out of an abundance of caution, has chosen to exceed CDC guidance in this area at this time.

Those who need to self-isolate due to being sick or testing positive for COVID-19 are being instructed to notify the university in order to receive health care monitoring and support and to protect the health and safety of our community as much as possible.

International Students and Students Returning from Abroad

Per Vanderbilt policy, students coming to campus from abroad, including international students, who plan to live off campus must self-quarantine for 14 days before arriving on campus.

Residential undergraduates returning from abroad will need to self-quarantine off campus before arriving on campus for the start of the fall semester.

All students arriving from abroad are asked to complete the International Pre-arrival Form on Anchorlink.


To facilitate the required 14-day quarantining of students coming to campus from abroad, including international students, the university has negotiated special rates with the following local hotels and will continue to update this information in the event that additional options become available. International students must present proof of eligibility to hotels, which will be provided by International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS). The student is responsible for all associated costs.
