Systems Access Requirements

Faculty and Staff Eligibility

All UC Berkeley employees should have automatic access to book travel in ConnexUC and Direct Bill. To get started, they need to log in to each system and update their profile.

To have automatic access, they must be listed as a UC Berkeley employee (paid through UC Path). Non-employees can have travel booked for them as guest travelers.

When an employee traveler uses ConnexUC for the first time, they will be prompted to update their profile. Please refer to the Updating your Profile Information in ConnexUC page for instructions.

Employee travelers should review their profile information prior to booking reservations. It is important to ensure their full name matches their travel documents (passport for international travel and driver's license for domestic flights) so as to avoid security issues with TSA. Additionally, be sure to confirm that there is a primary phone number listed under the “Business” tab of the profile. If that field is left empty, they will not be able to complete a booking in the booking tool. If a primary phone number is not entered, the tool will advise the user (after they select flights) that the booking cannot be completed until the profile is completed.

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
