Syracuse Abroad Spring 2021 Program Updates

Syracuse Abroad, in partnership with University leadership, has made the difficult decision to suspend center study abroad programs for spring 2021. Although every effort has been made to offer students a robust study abroad experience next semester, including modified programs complete with comprehensive Coronavirus health and safety measures, much to our disappointment, we are unable to guarantee the quality global learning experience expected from Syracuse Abroad programs.

We understand how truly disappointing this decision is for students, but remain optimistic and excited about summer and fall 2021 programs. We hope that students who are able choose to participate in these programs, as each of our centers will have exciting new activities, courses, travel and field study opportunities to make these sessions a dynamic and meaningful experience.

Applicants in need of assistance with their spring semester on campus can reach out to the following Syracuse University departments:

  • If you need support finding off-campus housing for the spring 2021 semester, please contact the Office of Student Living, at or 315-443-3637. For on- campus housing, please contact the Housing, Meal Plan and ID Card office at
  • If you need to register spring 2021 courses on main campus or make adjustments to your existing schedule, please contact your assigned academic advisor in your home school/college.

We all at Syracuse University are committed to helping students pursue alternative plans for the spring semester, and hopefully for a future semester abroad.  For more information, students can contact Syracuse Abroad at
