Coronavirus COVID-19 updates

Aligned with city-wide and Temple University measures to limit the spread of Covid-19, the Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses Office in Philadelphia is closed until further notice. Our staff continue to operate remotely, and we look forward to assisting you during business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm. We encourage students to attend Foundations of Study Abroad Online and other information sessions as they become available, and to email us to schedule virtual appointments with advisors. See below for details.

Please visit the Temple University Coronavirus FAQ page for the latest information on the virus and its impact upon the Temple community.


Temple continues to monitor the developments related to the coronavirus globally, as we do for any event that might impact the health and safety of our international travelers. Official decisions regarding travel are made through various Temple departments including the offices of International Affairs and International Risk Management, and are based on official recommendations from the U.S. State Department, CDC, WHO, and International SOS. Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses will keep students, their families, and partner institutions informed of any impact upon our programs and students abroad.

Temple's Fall 2020 Programs have been cancelled. After a thorough review of current circumstances and much discussion with our colleagues in Japan, Rome and on Main Campus, Temple University will not be able to offer the fall 2020 semester study abroad programs at Temple Japan or Temple Rome. Please see the program cancellation notices, which include information for accepted students: Temple Japan Cancellation Notice (June 29, 2020); Temple Rome Cancellation Notice (July 17, 2020). We are also we are unable to permit students to participate in fall 2020 approved external or exchange study abroad programs. Please see our External and Exchanges Program Cancellation Notice (July 15, 2020) for more information on this decision.

Temple's Spring and Summer Programs are scheduled to run in 2020-2021. Temple Rome and Temple Japan will have to limit the number of study abroad students on their campuses for the Spring 2021 term. We also anticipate interest in the spring and summer programs may be higher than in previous years as some students are deferring their study abroad plans in light of the pandemic. We strongly encourage students to apply early.
