Restrictions on University-sponsored Travel
In light of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) across the country and around the world, Brown University has restricted all University-sponsored travel with a return date before May 30, 2020, if the travel is:
- domestic, non-essential; or
- involves conferences or large groups.
This webpage defines “University-sponsored” and "essential travel," provides travel guidance from funding agencies, and outlines policies established for faculty and staff who need to cancel existing reservations or pursue reimbursement for incurred expenses (including for grant-funded travel). This page also offers guidance for personal travel. This information will be updated regularly in response to changes in policy and to new guidance from federal and other agencies.
