The University of New Haven Payroll Department's primary responsibility is the accurate and timely processing of all faculty, staff and student payrolls. With each and every check issued, payroll is required by law to withhold the correct deductions for federal, state and local taxes. Other services provided are preparing Forms W-2 and related employment tax returns, direct deposit information, and employee job and deduction records. The University of New Haven's Payroll Department is staffed with highly skilled professionals who are experts at meeting payroll deadlines and answering employees' inquiries regarding earnings, taxes, and deductions.

This web page has been designed by the Payroll Department to share payroll information with the faculty, staff and students of the University of New Haven. It also contains links to other web sites that may be of interest to our employees. We sincerely hope that it proves to be a valuable source of reference for all employees of the university.

The mission of the Payroll Department is to:

  • produce timely and accurate processing of all faculty, staff and student payrolls
  • comply with federal, state, and local regulations
  • uphold institutional policies
  • minimize risk to the organization through strong internal controls
  • reduce costs through the efficient use of resources.

  2. Inclement Weather

    If the University closes due to inclement weather on payday:

    DIRECT DEPOSIT payments will still be posted to accounts as normally scheduled.

    PAPER PAY CHECKS will be available for pick up from  10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on the next business day that the University is open.

    To the Campus Community,

    W-2 forms will be available today from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. when the University closes due to the impending storm.  W-2’s will be available on Wednesday, January 28th when the University reopens until 2:00 p.m.   If the University does not reopen on Wednesday, another email update will provide distribution details. 

    The remaining W-2 forms will be delivered to the post office to be mailed. The W-2 forms that are mailed will have a postmark of no later than January 31, 2015    which is in compliance with the IRS distribution deadline .

    Again, please note, due to the sensitive nature of the information contained on an employee’s W-2, specifically Social Security numbers, we will only provide each employee with their own W-2.  Please do not send a representative to pick up multiple W-2s for any given area.  W2 forms cannot and will not be released to anyone who does not present a photo ID.  This requirement is for your protection.  

    As an added service to the campus community, each employee’s W-2 information will also be available online through Inside UNH on Monday January 26th at 9:00 a.m.  To access this information go to Inside UNH and click on the My HR tab and then select the Tax Forms (W2) link to access and print copies of your 2014 W-2. 

    Thank you and stay safe!
