Frequently Asked Question
How to set up an account
You will need to know the following information in order to set up an account:
- The last 4 digits of your social security number
- Your date of birth
- Your employee ID number. You can find your employee number on your direct deposit slip or or your pay stub.
To begin registration, go to https://ess.berkeley.net:29295. You can click on the link, or copy and paste the URL into Google Chrome or another web browser. If this is your first time on the site, click register.
Note: Next time you visit, you will click login.
In the next window you create your account. You only have to do this step once.
- – Last four digits of your Social Security number
- – Your employee id number (you can find this on any pay stub)
- – Your date of birth
Then, enter your desired login name and password. Use something you will remember. You may want to use a login similar to your @berkeley.net account. Make sure you store your password in a password manager or your phone so you don’t forget it.
If the information is entered correctly you will be directed to a login page as shown. Your username should automatically appear in the username field along with “staff” for the “User Type” and you can then enter the password that you just created and then select the “login” button. If everything is entered correctly you will be directed to the ESS homepage.
