Get Onboard!

Before Your First Day

We're so excited to welcome you to UNCW! Before you get here, there are some things you need to do.

Required Tasks

  1. Complete your I-9 Form
    This process is completed online. You will receive an email from Human Resources to initiate this process. Once you receive this email, please read it carefully and follow the instructions promptly. In order to complete your I-9, you'll need to have certain identification documents ready - click here for a list of acceptable documents.
  2. Set up your UNCW email account
    Sometime before your start date, you'll receive an email from the Onboarding Center with your UNCW ID# and email address. From there, you'll receive a follow-up email with instructions on setting up your email account. Please be sure to read these emails carefully and follow the instructions promptly. If you don't get the follow-up email with instructions on setting up your email account, contact UNCW's Technology Assistance Center
  3. Talk to your supervisor
    Prior to your start date, your supervisor should reach out to schedule a phone call. To help you prepare for this phone call, we've curated a list of helpful questions you may want to ask your supervisor. 

Helpful Resources

Some other things that may be helpful for you to look into before you arrive include:

  • Parking 
    You should know that all faculty and staff members are expected to pay for parking on campus and park in staff parking spaces. New employees should wait to register their vehicles until their first or second day, but no later than the end of their first week through the Parking Portal in MySeaport. TIP: Use your UNCW account for the parking portal-do not your personal email account. Visit the parking office website and email if you have any additional questions or if you get a parking ticket before you have had a chance to register your vehicle in your first week.
  • One Card
    Your UNCW One Card is the official form of identification on campus and it allows you smooth sailing access to a world of university services and events. You'll go to Auxiliary Services in the Warwick Center to get your  UNCW One Card  during your first week. Please email if you have any questions. 
  • Campus map
    Not sure where your building is? Or maybe you're wondering how on earth you get to the Warwick Center to pick up your One Card? Check out this printable campus map or this interactive campus map to help you navigate during your first few days on campus.
