About the Student Employment Office

Meet the Staff

The Student Employment Office works with enrolled degree-seeking students to assist them in their employment endeavors. Our centralized office comprises three areas:

Student Job Service

The Student Job Service is a free job listing service open to employers both on campus and throughout the Greater Boston area. Eligible Boston University students can find part-time positions, summer employment, or temporary (Quick) jobs lasting from a few minutes to a few weeks.


Boston University employs over 2,500 students through the Federal Work-Study Program: on campus, in the University’s schools, colleges, and offices; or off campus at nonprofit, incorporated community service organizations.

Additional information is available for:

Student Payroll

Student Payroll works to ensure that the University’s student employees are paid in an accurate and timely fashion. Student Payroll maintains personnel and payroll history for student employees, and works closely with the International Students and Scholars Office, University Payroll, and Work-Study to ensure that all federal and state payroll regulations are met for students working on campus. Student Payroll also provides employment verification, past and present, for students employed at the University.
