UBITName and Password are required

Pre-Approval is Required for All UB Travel

The university strongly recommends that all UB faculty, staff, students and non-employees (guests) avoid traveling to regions impacted by COVID-19. If a faculty, staff, student or non-employee (guest) travels for essential university business, they must adhere to NYS COVID-19 Travel Advisory guidelines. For those circumstances in which overnight business travel is required, the traveler/department must obtain pre-approval before making any travel arrangements. Travelers should follow guidance from their Unit Business Officer (UBO) to obtain required approvals, including the Deans approval for Academic units and Vice Presidential approval for Academic support units. Once your travel is pre-approved, and after your trip has occurred, you must attach a copy of the completed signed travel pre-approval form to your expense report for reimbursement. This is required for all funding sources (State, Research Foundation and UB Foundation).
