To enroll in a New Employee Orientation session, use the blu campus portal (see additional enrollment instructions).

New Employee Orientation is held every other month. We encourage new employees to attend as soon as possible after beginning work at Berkeley - you'll learn about the campus, gain understanding of your benefits, and discover some new opportunities that are free to staff.

A campus tour will start at 11:30 a.m., right after the campus vendor/services presentation portion of the orientation (please bring comfortable walking shoes!). It's optional, but we encourage you to take part in it.
