Staff Orientation

Welcome to UCC! These webpages have been designed to provide new staff with an introduction to the University, its structures, procedures and community.  The Staff Orientation Booklet, the UCC Staff Handbook and information on relocating to Cork can all be found on these webpages. This portal is one contribution to the induction process with local orientation provided by schools/departments and a formal orientation programme organised monthly by the Department of Human Resources. Please email for further details.
