The 26-year-old signed a two and a half year deal with Peter Taylor's side and will likely go right into the squad for tomorrow's home match against Boston United.
Joseph becomes the second signing that the Boothferry Park club have made this week, with Steve Melton joining the Division Three outfit on loan from Taylor's old club Brighton & Hove Albion.
Taylor rates the defender very highly and has been busy this week brokering a deal to secure his services on Humberside.
The former Cambridge United man moved to The Posh on a free transfer in the summer of 2001 and has been a regular in Barry Fry's squad since then.
Hull will hope he can help in the club's quest to reach a promotion play-off place this season in Division Three.
Meanwhile, Peterborough have been dealt a blow after the loan deal to bring Luton Town goalkeeper Mark Ovendale to London Road collapsed on Thursday.
Ovendale was to be brought in by Fry as cover for the injured Mark Tyler, who has a fractured hand.
However, Luton boss Joe Kinnear decided to pull out on the deal as he was concerned about the future of fellow custodian Cedric Berthelin.
Kinnear told The Hatters' official website: "Ovendale was going to go to Peterborough, but I called it off because Cedric's loan period is almost up.
"I would have gone through with it but once you loan goalkeepers out you can only get them back for injuries.
"That would have left me with (Carl) Emberson and (Dean) Brill and if Emberson had been having a bad time like all goalkeepers do, I couldn't recall Ovendale.
"So I decided against it but something might happen next week. It's not completely out of the window.
"He was going there as cover for (Mark) Tyler, but as soon as he was fit, Ovendale would have been back on the bench."
