Guidelines for Travel

University-Sponsored Travel

As of March 11, 2020 - We have broadened our travel ban to include all Simmons-supported travel – domestic and international — for at least the next 30 days. This means you should cancel any travel you have planned on behalf of Simmons in the next 30 days to attend or speak at conferences, college fairs, donor events, and other large gatherings – even if there will be cancellation charges. We will let you know if we extend the ban beyond 30 days. In the meantime, please do not purchase travel-related expenses for dates at any time beyond the current ban.

We are also cancelling all Simmons travel courses for the remainder of this fiscal year. It's too soon to make a call on programs planned for late summer or fall, but we will continue to monitor their viability.

University Travel Registry

To be sure we can provide resources and assistance for members of our community who may encounter a virus-related situations, Simmons students, faculty, and staff who travel outside of Massachusetts are asked to use the university’s travel registry.

This registry should be used regardless of the length of travel or destination. This registry will be in effect for the foreseeable future – beyond the week of Spring Break.

We appreciate the robust participation thus far. Please continue to let us know of any personal travel, and update us on any cancelled trips:
