Faculty & Staff

University-sponsored international and domestic travel remains suspended for the spring semester, with a very limited set of exceptions. The revised social contract also directly sets other, stricter limits on travel by those who are subject to its terms, including a general prohibition on any travel – including personal travel –  beyond Mercer County and/or Plainsboro Township, except under a small number of circumstances. For those not subject to the social contract but who will still be studying or working on campus, personal travel for any non-essential reason remains discouraged.

University Travel & Expense Card

Image of Visa card.If you travel or incur out-of-pocket expenses while conducting University business, speak with your department about obtaining a University Travel & Expense Card. Work with leadership in your department to complete a Travel and Expense Card application and submit it to the Financial Service Center at finance@princeton.edu.

When you use a University credit card, your transactions are synched to your Concur profile and are available to be substantiated on an expense report. This reduces the manual process required to request reimbursement and ensures you are not burdened with out-of-pocket costs while you conduct University business.
