Student Worker


The Office of Residential Life hires many student employees throughout the entire year for various jobs, both in the halls and in our main office. Interviews are held on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. There are a limited number of positions, so we urge you to apply early. Academic-year positions are typically filled by September 15; however, sometimes we need to fill vacancies, so feel free to apply. Staff are selected based upon a number of characteristics such as availability and previous experience. Please note: The application process for Summer Staff begins in February and requires a different application. We will contact you via email if you have been invited to participate in the interview process.
