Welcome to the Office of Human Resources


The Office of Human Resources serves to provide a supportive and
collaborative partnership for the City College community. With over
3,000 employees, our institution brings together some of the best talent
in the City of New York and in the world. As the flagship campus of the
City University of New York, our campus is accessible by most major
train lines including Metro North, and is conveniently located in the
heart of one of the greatest communities in New York City. Our dedicated
faculty and staff are the heart and strength of our institution, and we
strive to do our best to make their experience enjoyable and enriching.

The entire Human Resources staff works diligently to
find on-campus employment opportunities for students who are seeking to
further their skills or for those who are seeking meaningful mentoring
relationships with our exceptional faculty and staff. New employees join
us each month for new employee orientations and we connect with veteran
employees weekly through one-on-one retirement or benefits planning.

The network of Human Resources Coordinators in each of
the academic schools and administrative divisions are also available to
assist individuals with their personnel needs. Each day our goal is to
provide the best service and advice on a wide range of human resources
and personnel matters. We hope you will find the information on our site
useful and please feel free to contact us in person if there is
additional information we can provide.

CUNY First is here!

Please be advised; with the launching of CUNY First, the "Change of Personal Data Form" has been officially phased out for address changes. It is no longer required for City employees to submit this form the Human Resources, and employees are now responsible for updating their most current address via CUNY First.

It is, however, still the employee's responsibility to update their current contact information with their Pension Plan, and Voluntary Benefits such as, Tax Deferred Annuity Plans, Long term care, Catastrophe Major Medical Line, Life Insurance, etc.) as well as your department. You can access CUNY First information here, as well as information on claiming your CUNY First account.

The Change of Personal Data Form is still used for DEGREE AND NAME CHANGES ONLY. This form can only be picked up from the HR Department, and must have the ORIGINAL valid documents such as a SOCIAL SECURITY CARD (For w-2 issuing purposes), valid PASSPORT, DRIVERS LICENSE, or ACCREDITED COLLEGE DIPLOMA for degree changes.
