Returning after International Travel
Because the CDC does not currently require a 14-day quarantine period for travelers to the United States from abroad, Vanderbilt will not require this for students who are abroad during the winter break and plan to arrive for in-person on-campus activities for the spring semester. However, a quarantine is required if the person was exposed to the virus during travel. If the CDC or other local guidelines change for travelers from abroad before students’ return, the university will implement those changes.
Note that for countries that have specific travel restrictions, students will need to abide by CDC or other federal agency guidance. ISSS is available to support students if additional guidance is needed.
The university currently plans for all students, whether returning to campus from abroad or from locations within the United States, to follow all of the same arrival protocols for the spring semester. Those plans are being finalized and will be shared with all students by Dec. 15.
There may be additional requirements all students must follow when returning for the spring semester. This may include testing and shelter-in-place requirements. Some programs also may have specific requirements dependent on the nature of the activities. The university or programs will communicate any such requirements as they are finalized.
To facilitate quarantining, 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.
