New Employee Orientation

Due to COVID-19, we will not be holding in-person orientation until further notice.

Employees eligible for benefits have 30 days from the date of hire (or date of eligibility) to complete enrollment documents and submit them to the Office of Human Resource Management. Therefore, as a new employee, you are encouraged to attend New Employee Orientation within two weeks of your start date. New Employee Orientation will provide you with information on LSU, employee benefits, retirement plans and a variety of campus resources. In addition, you will register & receive your parking tag, and have the option to take a bus tour of our beautiful camps. Lunch is provided courtesy of The Club at LSU Square Union.

New Employee Orientation is held every other Monday. Check-in begins at 8:15 a.m. Orientation begins at 8:30 a.m. and concludes by 2:30 p.m. Please bring a picture ID and a pencil/pen with you.

To register for New Employee Orientation, please go to the Training and Event Registration website.  

Registration is required by 4 p.m. on the Thursday prior to Orientation. Being placed on the waiting list does not ensure a reserved spot in Orientation. 

Please contact the Office of Human Resource Management at 225-578-8200 for more information.
