The University of Bridgeport is a member of the Forum on Education Abroad, federally recognized as the standards-setting body for the field of education abroad.

The University of Bridgeport and the Office of Study Abroad are actively monitoring official information and updates on the ongoing Coronavirus disease outbreak (COVID-19) from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the U.S. Department of State. All Spring and Summer 2020 study abroad programs have been cancelled. All University sponsored travel will be continually assessed as new information becomes available.

We encourage our Faculty, Staff, and Students to continue to follow safe hygiene habits per the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization recommendations.

We will continue to update the University of Bridgeport community with any new updates.
