New Faculty Information

Congratulations on your acceptance as part of the St. John’s University Faculty community. In an effort to make your transition to our campus as smooth as possible, we have prepared this section of the Provost’s site as a channel to the information you need. Just follow the links provided below.

Paperwork and Logistics
UIS (University Information System) is the management software, which the university uses to maintain information on all students and employees. It is important to note that your information will not be entered into UIS until all your employment paperwork has been completed. You can check with your chair’s office to make sure that you have completed everything and that it has been submitted. 
Once you are entered into the system you will be able to:

  • Obtain an ID card, called a StormCard, which provides access to the University Libraries
  • Access email
  • Access MySJU, the University's portal for students and employees which provides access to homepages for your courses, UIS itself, and links to many University services
  • Apply for a parking permit
