Student Employment Opportunities
Work activities—both paid and unpaid—are vital to your career development and can be key to your qualifying for better job opportunities upon graduation, as well as providing for financial support of your education. The University has a variety of on-campus and off-campus job and internship opportunities you may want to explore. You may be able to get a position in your major department or in an area of special interest, such as the day care centers, research laboratories, or the linear accelerator. Large campus employers include the Division of Campus Residences, the Libraries, Campus Recreation, and the Faculty Student Association.
