For Undergraduate Students
University-sponsored international and domestic travel remains suspended for the spring semester, with a very limited set of exceptions. The revised social contract also directly sets other, stricter limits on travel by those who are subject to its terms, including a general prohibition on any travel – including personal travel – beyond Mercer County and/or Plainsboro Township, except under a small number of circumstances. For those not subject to the social contract but who will still be studying or working on campus, personal travel for any non-essential reason remains discouraged.
Princeton University encourages and supports domestic and international travel that enriches undergraduate programs. Students may participate in:
- Academic research
- Study abroad
- Service work
- Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities
Undergraduate students are required to submit a request for all University-sponsored overnight travel (domestic and international) in Concur (exception: travel to New York City and Philadelphia). For more information on the travel request process for University-sponsored travel and related policies, please consult the undergraduate travel checklist.
