The university has negotiated rates with several area hotels for official guests of UB, such as faculty candidates or guest speakers.
The hotel rates are based on the CONUS per diem rates, and are not for personal use and not for the use of parents or relatives of students. Inappropriate use of these agreements will jeopardize the availability of the rates.
Group rates for meetings or conferences may differ from individual room night rates.

Direct bill simply means the hotel will invoice the university instead of requiring a credit card to hold the reservation. The guest will still need to provide a credit card upon arrival for incidentals not covered by the university.
If the hotel is able to direct bill the University and offers the per diem rate for the current year, you can book your guest at a different hotel. Check the current New York state per diem rates.
If you already have reservations at a hotel that is above the current per diem rate you can cancel the reservation and book a room at a different hotel or use UBF funding to pay for this expenditure.
Yes. However it must be within the current per diem rates and not include alcohol. All alcoholic beverages must be paid for by the guest.
