Student Employment

Collage of student workers

The office of human resources, in conjunction with the office of financial aid, strives to create a workplace and working community at Loyola which models for our students "strong truths, well lived." Our vision of student employment—both undergraduate and graduate—is to provide students with the opportunity to work on campus, working hand-in-hand with our faculty, staff, and administrators to fulfill Loyola's mission and their own potentials. Human resources would like Loyola to be a place where students come not just to learn from their course work, but also for personal fulfillment and job experience.

The National Student Employment Association states:

Work helps prepare a student for modern office culture, and promotes constructive employer/employee relationships. Students express ingenuity and creativity as they are encouraged to make improvements in their job situation. Working students also develop good habits like consistency, dependability, cooperation, tact and poise, and learn responsibility through meeting work schedules and quality requirements.

While our creeds and beliefs sometimes differ, we are all collaborators in an important endeavor, striving together to realize the Ignatian vision of education at Loyola. Individually and collectively, we are called to serve others with care and concern for the whole person that is at the heart of Jesuit education. In so doing, we will make Loyola an institution worthy of our efforts and deserving of our pride.

Undergraduate Employment

There are two kinds of hourly student worker positions. Federal Work Study (FWS) student workers have funds available within their Financial Aid package to support a work-study position. Departments are allotted a certain number of FWS that they can hire. Learn more about FWS here.  Non-Work Study positions are referred to as Direct Hire Student Workers. Direct hires are funded by the departmental budgets. All student positions are now listed through the Handshake. If you have issues accessing certain content or if you have technical questions, reach out to the Rizzo Career Center at or 410-617-2232 and a member our team will be happy to assist you in-person.

Student Worker new hire paperwork has been automated. Once HR receives the Student Employment Agreement from the supervisor they will initiate any required new hire paperwork to the student to complete.
