Student Employment at Trinity

Trinity offers students many opportunities to work in a variety of positions throughout the campus. From working in the Library or the Trinity Center to assisting in the Development Office or the Admissions Office, a campus job is a great way for students to become more involved in the Trinity community and earn a steady income. Campus jobs are convenient because there is no commute and the hours are flexible.

Student employment is limited to a maximum of 15 hours per week. Trinity’s Human Resources Office maintains a listing of all student employment positions and helps students complete all of the required paperwork.

Trinity students who are awarded federal work study as part of their financial aid packages are given priority for campus jobs.
