As part of the university, we believe that it is part of our mission to offer real-world learning opportunities to university students. As a result, we have openings for students every year across the organization. Most of our student hiring takes place at the beginning of the fall semester for the academic year and in the spring for our summer programs.

University student employment opportunities will be posted to this page. We also hire work-study students. Work-study positions are posted to the UNC federal work-study webpage.
