Student Employment Home

The opportunity for a student to work is a fundamental part of the University of Portland's philosophy, based firmly in the conviction that a meaningful and rewarding work experience is an educational benefit of lasting value. For this reason, the University designates significant funding each year for student employment. While some students qualify for the Federal Work-Study program, most students work on campus earning Student Employment Institutional Funds.

The University of Portland Student Employment Program is intended to:

  • Provide students with financial support for doing worthwhile work
  • Meet the needs of the University and other on-campus employers to perform day-to-day operations
  • Offer students valuable learning experiences to complement college and career goals
  • Help students develop good work habits and a positive attitude toward work
  • Prepare students for life beyond the University

Telework Policy

The Student Employment Office has developed a Telework Policy for student employees in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) global crisis and its impact on our campus community.

Please review the following documents available on the Human Resources PilotsUP page: Covid 19-Related Guidance for Student Employees and their Supervisors and Covid-19 Telework Policy. 

If you are requesting to telework please notify your supervisor and complete the Confidentiality Agreement Form. After review by Student Employment, you will be sent the Covid Telework Agreement form to complete.  


Lack of Work

For Student Employees who due to the Covid-19 are not able to maintain student employment hours and therefore are in financial need can complete the Lack of Work-Student Employee Online Form.  The information on this form will allow the Student Employment Office to review each student's situation who has been unable to continue their regularly scheduled student employment hours due to stalled operations and therefore lack of work.
