New Employee Orientation

To enroll in a New Employee Orientation session, go to the UC Learning Center link.

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

At the end of the information session we offer a guided campus tour leaving from University Hall at 11:30 a.m. so please wear comfortable walking shoes! We encourage all new employees to take part.

To sign up for a New Employee Orientation session at UC Berkeley, please view the following:
