Welcome to our campus community. The information on this page will familiarize you with everything our extraordinary university has to offer.

Employee handbook

The Employee Handbook and Indigenous Employee Guide provide new hires with general information about working at UVic.

Getting set up

As a new employee, you need to complete the UVic Employee Onboarding Checklist. Be sure to complete the UVic Employee Information form as soon as possible.

Once you’ve filled in and returned the employee information form, you’ll receive an email with your employee number and a link to create a NetLink ID. You must have a NetLink ID to set up your UVic email account and payroll.

You should also submit your direct deposit authorization form as soon as possible. You can find this form on the employee onboarding checklist.

Use your NetLink ID to login to the My page portal. In the employee services tab, you can access your:

  • pay information: job summary, pay stubs and direct deposit allocation
  • leaves and benefits: benefit statement and leave balances (including sick and vacation entitlements)
  • tax forms: downloadable T4 slips, tax credits and TD1/deductions return forms
  • UVic email
You can also update or change your online name and preferred email address.

Your ID card

The ONECard is your official UVic identification. You can get yours at the ONECard office in the University Centre. You’ll need to bring your UVic V00# and a piece of government-issued photo ID. You can load money onto your ONECard and use it as a debit card across campus. Add funds and manage your balance in My page.

New Employee Welcome event

This annual event is hosted by Human Resources and is open to any employee who is new to UVic or has never attended a new employee welcome. The session usually includes:

  • a panel that introduces some senior administration, our UVic Strategic Framework and the UVic Edge
  • information about current UVic projects, research and student activities
  • activities about our values of diversity, culture, sustainability and healthy workplaces
  • a welcome speech by the university president

Orientation for new faculty & librarians

The Division of Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI) offers an annual orientation program for new faculty and librarians. This is a great way to network with other new colleagues across campus and learn about administrative processes and procedures.

For more information, email ltsiaa@uvic.ca.

New employee tours

Parking

UVic uses virtual parking permits by licence plate number. All vehicles parked on campus must have a licence plate linked to a valid permit.

Hourly, daily and weekly permits are available at any parking dispenser or online.

Annual permits are purchased from Campus Security or online by month, term or year.
