CAMPUS Employment
At UNI, campus employment is more than a paycheck. Imagine doing research between classes next to an accomplished professor, or leading an exercise class to keep your fellow Panthers healthy, or assisting with an event for a national leader visiting campus. These are just a few of the 200+ unique jobs at UNI that over 5400+ student employees work in to prepare themselves for life after graduation. 

Students at UNI can work up to 20 hours per week  (FT during breaks). Pay depends on skill and demand, with most positions paying approximately $9.25 per hour. The vast majority of the positions do not require Federal Work Study.

If you plan to work during your time at UNI, be sure to have original copies of ID (most common are a Social Security Card and drivers license) so we can process your hiring paperwork without delay.
