Adjunct Workspace

The adjunct workspace is on the third floor outside of the copier/printer room 3.31A and room 3.40. There are 10-15 PC computers, whiteboards, bookshelves and coat racks available for adjunct faculty use. You are more than welcome to utilize this space for course-related activities, including office hours, meetings with students, and administrative matters. The desks are first come, first served. Please do not leave any personal items in them.

  • Short-term private offices:
    • Offices 3.33 & 3.39 are locations where you can meet with students for office hours, and/or conversations that require privacy. Office availability is generally first come, first served, but there is a sign-up sheet posted on each door if you would like to reserve time in advance. These offices are not locked, and are not meant for long-term storage or use. Please note that the sign-up sheet to secure each space is a shared communal system, so please be courteous to your colleagues.
    • It is possible to obtain temporary space for added office hours and/or larger gatherings with students, such as review or study sessions, by contacting Maxine Tobias in the Registrar’s Office and/or Kathy Harrison in Event’s & Conference services.
  • Lockers:
    • Short-term/daily use adjunct lockers have been installed in room 3.40 and outside of room 1.11 (campus mailroom).
      • All lockers are the property of UConn and therefore reserves the right to inspect lockers at any time with or without permission of the user.
          • If the locker has to be opened by anyone other than the person using the locker, a member of the operations team and a representative of UCONN Police and/or Administration shall be present.
      • Users are responsible for all items placed in a locker and UCONN will not be responsible for any loss or damage to items stored in the locker.
      • All lockers are intended for daily usage/short-term storage.
      • Lockers must be maintained in a clean and sanitary manner and kept free from accumulation of food and trash. No food items are allowed in the lockers.
      • Sharing of combinations with others compromises the security of the lockers. The only way to guarantee that no one can enter your locker without your permission is by keeping your locker combination completely private.
      • Users must empty contents of the lockers as instructed by the operations team and/or administration for the purposes of cleaning and general maintenance.
      • Pursuant to the locker guidelines, a user who has lost/forgotten their code may request that their locker be open in order to gain access to the contents.
      • Lockers are opened based upon availability of staff and during normal business hours.
        • Monday- Friday: 9am-4pm
        • A valid UConn ID card is required and the user of the locker must be present when their locker is opened.
      • For lost/forgotten user codes please contact:

Important Update: As of 9/1/20, in-person paycheck pick-ups will not occur for the fall 2020 semester. Paychecks will be mailed directly to your address listed in CoreCT. 

If you receive a paper check in place of direct deposit, please note the following:

  • Checks are distributed to employees, via the Operations Department, on pay week Fridays.
  • All employees will be emailed if a paper check has arrived and the time frame to retrieve the check.
    • Alternative paycheck pick-up arrangements will be outline in the above email.
  • Employees will be notified whenever a check distribution date is to be changed due to a holiday, inclement weather, etc.

    State of Connecticut payroll checks are valid for six months. If you are in possession of an outdated payroll check, please return it to the Payroll Department and we will forward it to the Treasury for reissue.  If you have misplaced a payroll check, you may request a replacement by completing a lost check affidavit in the Payroll Department. You will be asked to provide the date of the missing check and your picture ID. Lost check affidavits must be signed in the presence of a notary public. Notaries are available in the Payroll Department. If you are unable to come to the Storrs Campus, we can mail/email the affidavit to you and you can bring it to the notary of your choice.

    The check replacement process takes approximately two to four weeks to complete. Once your replacement check has been issued, you may request:

    • To claim the check in the Payroll Office
    • Have it distributed with your regular check
    • Have it mailed to your home address

    Direct deposit is recommended for all University of Connecticut employees. Employees who reside outside of Connecticut, or who work at regional campuses, are strongly encouraged to participate. Please note that once a Direct Deposit has been established, all State of Connecticut earnings will be issued via Direct Deposit regardless of state agency.

    Direct deposit has several benefits including:

    • No need to manually deposit a check each pay period
    • Protection against the loss or theft of checks
    • Timely and reliable payments
    • Funds from direct deposit payments are accessible earlier than the funds from checks
    • There is no cost to employees who elect to be paid via direct deposit.  In fact, many banks offer free checking services to individuals with direct deposit.
    • Direct deposit is GREEN, efficient and environmentally friendly.

    To sign up for direct deposit, log into Core-CT via and navigate to Main Menu>Self Service>Payroll>Direct Deposit. You will be asked to enter your bank account and routing number. Direct deposit requests take two weeks (one pay period) to process. For more information, check out our post on Everything You Need to Know about Direct Deposit at UConn.

    The initial set-up of a direct deposit takes one to two pay periods to complete. Each new direct deposit account that is entered into the State’s Core-CT system must pass the State’s “pre-note process.”

    During this period, paper checks continue to be issued while the new account is tested. A $0.01 deposit will be made to the new account on the pay date preceding the direct deposit effective date.
