Non-Employee and Interview Candidate Travel

Information on travel, lodging and reimbursement processes for non-employees and interview candidates.
In this Section

Interview candidates and non-employee visitors must follow the travel information found on the Visitor's Travel Guide.

Travel Arrangements

Please coordinate airfare, hotel, and rental car reservations with the hosting department. The designated travel arranger will be in contact with visitors and candidates to ensure proper policies and procedures are followed. Reimbursement is only allowed when policy is followed so it is important to check in with the campus contact before making reservations.

  • Hotel Cobblestone Inn & Suites is the most commonly booked hotel and is right next to campus. Please be sure to check in with the campus contact before making reservations as the university only reimburses up to a certain dollar amount. It is important to ask for the state rate when booking.
  • Airfare must be booked with our UW designated travel agents. Interview candidates will be provided their contact information prior to making arrangements.
  • Rental cars for interview candidates and non-employee visitors must be booked using our Big 10 contract. It is recommended these reservations be made using our UW designated travel agents
