Travel Resources

 

Student Travel: Students should not travel away from campus before the Thanksgiving Break if at all possible. We remind students of this policy and urge students to cancel any non-essential travel plans they have, especially to other college campuses. If you must travel, limit your exposure by practicing social distancing and mask-wearing during your trip. Read the Return to Campus Protocol for those who must travel and plan to return this semester

Faculty and Staff Travel: University-related travel has been restricted since March due to health concerns. Because of the potential need for quarantining upon return from a long list of states as well as international travel, loosening these restrictions is not advised at this time. Therefore, all non-essential University-related travel should be deferred.

Quarantining Information: Anyone coming from international locations and the states designated as “hot spots” by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania must self-quarantine for 14 days, either in Pennsylvania or another location not listed by the Commonwealth just prior to arriving on campus.

Transportation: Parking Services has sent updated information regarding parking options and fees for the Fall semester. Check your email. Transportation services will continue to operate TapRide until further notice. Learn more about TapRide >

We are asking and encouraging students not to travel until instruction ends the week before Thanksgiving. We rescheduled the Fall Pacing Break, originally planned for October 12-13, to occur November 23-24 to allow students time to travel home. The academic calendar will be adjusted accordingly. All instruction, including exams, taking place after Thanksgiving will conclude remotely. There will be no classes during the week of Thanksgiving. Read the Return to Campus Protocol for those who must travel and plan to return this semester
