Sustainable Travel Event on Tuesday, November 7

The UC Berkeley Travel Team is partnering with the Campus Sustainability Office to offer a sustainable travel event. This event will focus on sustainable options for business travel, including how to reduce our travel-related carbon footprint. Attendees will learn more about what sustainable travel is and how to make more informed decisions when booking for both business and personal travel.

At the event, there will be raffle prizes, food, drinks, and vendors focused on sustainability and travel, including representatives from both Southwest and United Airlines. We will post updates to the Sustainable Travel Guide page on the Travel website.

TSA PreCheck event November 6 - 9; appointments will be available starting next week.

In partnership with the Sustainable Travel Event, there is a TSA PreCheck event from November 6 to November 9, 2023, at the Recreational Sports Facility (2301 Bancroft Way), room 42. At this event, there will be interview appointments to complete the TSA PreCheck enrollment process on campus. TSA PreCheck saves you time and hassles with access to expedited security screening lanes at participating airports, and you don't need to remove liquids, shoes, laptops, belts, and light jackets.

This is an opportunity for UC Berkeley faculty, staff, students, and their families who are eligible to schedule an interview with TSA on campus. Beginning next week, visit the TSA PreCheck event page on the travel website to read detailed instructions on how to apply. If you are interested please do not delay, as we expect the appointments to fill up fast.

There is a $78 non-refundable fee for five years of enrollment. This is a personal expense not reimbursable by the university. Payment can be made by credit card or electronic check. Eligible credit card holders may receive credit for the application fee from their credit card provider. Please contact the Accounts Payable and Travel office at with questions.
