Getting Started @UNH 

These sessions are scheduled by Human Resources ONLY

New hire orientation for staff and faculty* includes two short sessions – the first as close to day one of employment in a benefitted role as possible and the second approximately one month later. 

  • Session 1: Getting Started @UNH – held every Monday in the MUB, 3.5 hours:  8:30am – 12:00pm.  Provides key/timely information on benefits enrollment, policies, parking, ID, etc. – those important topics one needs to know quickly when starting employment.
  • Session 2: Discover YOUR UNH – held monthly on a Tuesday in Holloway Commons Dining Hall: 11:30am -2:00pm.  Lunch is provided, plus a number of key individuals will present information to help expand your knowledge of UNH, our culture and brand, and to increase awareness of the opportunities and responsibilities that come with joining our community.

Notification of your scheduled program dates will be sent via email to you with a copy to your supervisor. Included will be a link to the full program agenda, resources and related information:   On the site you will find important program details: session location, parking, and links to appropriate benefits materials for review prior to attendance.

*for faculty hired after the start of the academic year and who did not attend the New Faculty Orientation program held by the Provost's Office in August each year.
