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 through a work training program
  • Prepare students for life beyond the University as future career professionals

Upcoming Dates

Spring Student Employment Jobs

Spring student employment jobs are now live on the student employment job board. Summer jobs will be posted in mid to late March. We encourage students to continually check the job board (new postings are added on an ongoing basis) and apply to all jobs of interest for which you meet the minimum qualifications. Incoming students cannot start work until the first day of classes, but are encouraged to prepare. For information on campus jobs, resources and other student employment concerns see the Employee Checklist
