New staff at the University

There can be a lot to learn in your first few weeks of a new job. IT Services has a number of ways to help you get to grips with IT at Oxford.

Our website has lots of information on our Getting started pages, specifically written for new staff and students. This guidance will help you get set up with all your basic IT needs, such as email and internet access. We’ll also introduce you to the other IT services we offer that can help to make your work or study easier.

We attend UAS induction events each term to talk to new UAS, academic, departmental or faculty staff and run our own introduction to IT Services event every term. Our friendly Courses team in the IT Learning Centre run an extensive programme of courses each term on all aspects of IT skills and software.

Our IT Support Staff Services (ITS3) team run regular induction sessions for unit IT support staff covering a range of widely used technical services offered by IT Services.

If you run your own induction sessions, we are very happy to provide materials and leaflets aimed at new staff and students, contact the Communications Office at
