New to UNK

Welcome to the University of Nebraska at Kearney!  We are pleased to have you join our campus. To help ease your transition into the campus community, we are providing this information as a way to help you find your way around. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Human Resources at 865-8655.

First Day
During your first day at UNK, you will be asked to complete a number of forms so that we can get you set-up for payroll, benefits, computer access etc. Here is a checklist for your reference. When you come to fill out your new hire paperwork and do benefits with the Human Resources Department you will need to be able to provide documents for the I-9 (normally a driver’s license and social security card), a copy of your social security card and then documents proving eligibility of your dependents for insurance (marriage certificate, birth certificate).

For New Faculty/Staff
As a new faculty/staff, the first semester is a very busy time. The links on this page will help you acclimate to campus and the community.
