Travel Guidelines

Travel Restrictions

The University of Houston has updated its travel restrictions and is restricting university-sanctioned travel for business or study through December 31, 2020. Exceptions will be processed by vice presidents for domestic business-related travel.

Return from International Travel

Faculty, staff and students returning from international travel, university-sanctioned or personal, are required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon return to the United States. The requirement for self-quarantine includes international students who are traveling to the U.S. for fall classes.

See Completion of Self-Quarantine/Isolation for when the self-quarantine/isolation will end and what is required before the UH community member is allowed to return to work/class/activities on campus.

Learning Abroad

The University of Houston has cancelled all fall 2020 Learning Abroad programs. This includes all faculty-led programs as well as affiliated, exchange, student service organization programs, sponsored scholarship, fellowship, or research opportunities abroad, and any other programs that would be considered international travel for curricular or co-curricular purposes.

Students may continue to plan 2021 programs abroad with the help of their Learning Abroad Advisor. However, students should understand that future Learning Abroad opportunities are subject to change based on conditions both in the U.S. and abroad.
