Empowering a Community of Excellence

Shared Service Centers

KU has five Shared Service Centers (SSC) located strategically across campus to help units, departments, and employees with efficiently processing activities related to accounting, grant reporting, recruiting and onboarding.  Through your onboarding process you will be contacted by a member of your designated shared service center area to assist you with the finalization of your paperwork required to begin your career at KU.  It is highly encouraged to make an appointment prior to or on your first day of work to ensure that your appointment is active in our HR/Pay system for access to a multitude of campus services and activated for payroll distribution.

During your Shared Service Center appointment, you will need to bring specific required documents to finalize the onboarding process.  Employees which have just accepted a position as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, Graduate Research Assistant, or Graduate Assistant and are newly hired or are being rehired with a lapse in employment will need to complete the New Employee Packet and bring with them required documentation to verify work eligibility in the United States as well the State of Kansas.  At your appointment, the SSC representative will also provide you with information regarding payroll cycles, time reporting, training opportunities, and other University services.  At your appointment you may also have your photo taken for your KU Identification Card if desired.

Although it is recommended to meet with your designated Shared Service Center representative, we understand that sometimes that is not a possibility for the onboarding process.  To locate contact information for your unit’s SSC or to make an arrangement at an alternate SSC location, we would encourage you to reference the links below.
