New Employees

On behalf of The University of Texas at Austin, welcome! This webpage is designed to provide you with information to help you transition into your life as a university employee.

New Employee Welcome and Orientation (NEWO)

Visit the Welcome Page

We strongly encourage you to attend the New Employee Welcome and Orientation on your first day of work. At the orientation, you'll have the opportunity to complete all or most items on the New Employee Checklist to include receiving your UT ID Card, High Assurance upgrade, and complete the electronic Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification and E-Verify. In addition, in partnership with the new Visitor Center, a “Campus Walking Tour” is being offered immediately following NEWO.
