Pre-Employment & Onboarding


Once the candidate has signed and returned the offer letter, the HR Administrative Services team will contact the candidate to guide him/her through the pre-employment paperwork process and to schedule New Employee Orientation and pre-employment physicals if required.

New hires will be directed to stop by Brooks Landing prior to beginning employment to complete legally-required paperwork and get benefits information. They can also request a parking pass through the Department of Transportation and Parking.


You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so take advantage of your new hire’s onboarding as an opportunity to reinforce to them that they joined a remarkable institution. Set the groundwork for them to hit the ground running by ensuring they understand the job requirements, gain familiarity with key co-workers, have the tools they need to do their job, and feel welcomed and energized to join the University of Rochester!

The New Employee Onboarding Guide for managers guides you through the key steps you can take prior to your employees arrival through the introductory period to set your new employee up for a successful start.
