Systems Access Requirements

Only UC Berkeley faculty and staff can request access to ConnexUC and Direct Bill. In addition, specific travel-related and academic titles are automatically granted access. Please refer to the list of Job titles granted access to ConnexUC/Direct Bill (PDF).

Department travel administrators or department managers can request access for a user. To qualify, new users must:

  • be listed as a UC Berkeley employee
    • non-employees can have travel booked for them as guest travelers
  • have a valid CalNet ID
  • have a UC Berkeley directory listing that includes an email address and office phone number that is visible to the public

Please allow 48 hours for the system to build a valid profile.

The ConnexUC profile is built with information from the UC Berkeley directory listing. Travelers should use this directory to update their last names to match their travel documents (passport for international travel/driver's license for domestic flights) so as to avoid security issues with TSA. First and middle names, or middle initials, can be updated or adjusted within the ConnexUC profile itself.

To confirm whether or not someone else has access, use ConnexUC "My Profile" to search for an employee as a "Travel Arranger". If you can find them within ConnexUC, they already have full access to all the travel tools.

Access problems should be reported to travel@berkeley.edu.
