What happened to Connexxus?

Connexxus (also known as ConnexUC) is the University of California’s travel portal, featuring multiple booking options and travel-related content for all UC campuses.  UC San Diego has branched off into our own travel program with SAP Concur but many Connexxus resources are still available to you.   To find Connexxus, go to the Company Notes section of your Concur homepage and click “Read More.”

How Concur works

Concur is a secure platform for booking university business travel. It automatically applies UC-negotiated prices with airlines, hotels, and car rental companies. 

UCSD prepays airfare booked in Concur and purchases will automatically display in the employee's Available Expenses. Your travel profile stores your UCSD Travel & Entertainment Card for hotel and rental car expenses.
