Employee Orientation

Welcome to the University of Rochester!

We are a diverse community in which all who work, teach, create, and provide care are welcome and respected. We are honored that you have chosen to join our team.

The University of Rochester is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, patients, and community. Given the disruption caused by COVID-19, we are limiting large in-person classes, so we will not be holding New Employee Orientation at this time. Instead, you will complete an online organizational orientation in your department.

New Employee Orientation

On your designated start date, you will report directly to your department (with the exception of Nursing Practice staff who will receive information from HR or Nursing Recruitment regarding their orientation schedule).

Prior to your start date, we ask that you complete the following tasks:

  • Confirm your start time and location with your manager
  • Review information sent from your HR liaison including maps & temporary parking locations
  • Review the new employee checklist to guide your orientation tasks

For questions, contact your HR Employment Service Center Liaison


On behalf of the Office of Human Resources, we wish you a long and rewarding career with the University of Rochester!
