New Hire

Welcome to the University of Chicago. We are excited that you have chosen to be a part of our team. We know you have unique needs when it comes to your benefits, which is why we offer a comprehensive benefits program so you can choose what is important to you and your family.

The Benefits Guide under Related Documents contains information about the range of benefits available to you, as well as important information about your rights and responsibilities under the University benefit plans. Please take time to review the guide carefully and share it with those who help you with your benefit decisions.

Visit the Virtual Benefits and Health Fair to get information and resources that can enhance your wellbeing.

When you are ready to enroll, log in to Workday at to make your benefit elections within 31 days following your hire date or the date you become benefits-eligible. For a step-by-step guide to assist you with your enrollment, view the QRG Elect Benefits for the First Time under Related Documents.
