Welcome to the new University Travel Website!

Travel is an essential activity and is an integral part of the Kent State University vision to be a community of change agents whose collective commitment to learning sparks epic thinking, meaningful voice and invaluable outcome to better our society.

Through cooperation between the offices of Procurement and Accounts Payables, Kent State University has designed a travel program to meet the needs of all Kent State University individuals who travel on official, approved University business.

To support and encourage employees’ commitment to organizational stewardship of university funds, all domestic and international travel must be pre-approved using Concur through Christopherson Business Travel, Kent State University's travel booking site. Pre-approval of travel also allows for and enhances security through Christopherson Business Travel’s Duty-of-Care initiative. For more information about pre-approval and booking trips using Concur, please access the travel FAQ.

Christopherson Business Travel (CBT) has been selected as the travel service provider for Kent State University through the Inter-University Council Purchasing Group of Ohio (IUC-PG).

The Procurement Department is excited to offer this program to the university and has partnered with Accounts Payable in an easy-to-use travel and expense system that integrates travel booking and expense reporting and reimbursement. This partnership will result in world-class customer service and offer substantial cost savings for Kent State University.
