Finding a Student Job at UT Austin
The University of Texas at Austin employs over 10,000 students in a wide variety of student jobs each semester. This page provides some suggestions for finding a student job with the university.
Student Non-Academic Jobs
The Hire a Longhorn Job Bank is a great resource for students seeking part-time employment. Many student non-academic positions on campus are posted there, along with off-campus openings. Both Federal Work-Study and non-Work-Study jobs are listed. Student positions are filled at the departmental level, so you might also check directly with the department where you’d like to work. In addition, watch for job fairs hosted by campus employers.
Here are the employment websites of some of the largest employers of students on campus:
- Division of Recreational Sports
- Division of Housing and Food Services
- University Unions
- Intercollegiate Athletics
Student Academic Jobs
If you’re a graduate student seeking a student academic position, you should begin looking for specific availability well before the start of the semester by checking with the graduate adviser or graduate coordinator in the department in which you want to work. Check with your home department first. For Graduate Research Assistant positions, you will need to check with individual professors. More information about graduate student academic employment is available from the Graduate School.
If you’re an undergraduate seeking an academic position, contact the department where you’d like to work. The College of Natural Sciences and the Sanger Learning Center are two large employers of undergraduates in academic jobs.
Job openings in student academic positions may be listed in the Hire a Longhorn job bank.

The University of Texas at Austin uses E-Verify to check the work authorization of any employee who works on a federal contract that requires E-Verify. The University does not use E-Verify for every new hire, and therefore is not a qualifying employer for the OPT-STEM extension program. For more information about E-Verify, please see the following:
