Why Should I Work on Campus?
More than 2,000 students work across the UTEP campus. From the library to the recreation center, from labs to offices, our student employees keep UTEP running! It’s no wonder why so many students want to work on campus—there are so many advantages.
Earn Money / Save Money
On-campus jobs are a great way to earn money! If you need extra cash to pay for books and supplies or if you just want a little extra spending money, working through college is a proud UTEP tradition. Working at UTEP also helps you save on gas money and avoid the frustration of traffic and construction. No need to drive to your job after class—you’re already there.
Work Around Your Class Schedule
UTEP offices and departments that hire student employees understand that you are college students first and they want to support your goals and aspirations. Working around your class schedule and other commitments is a priority for our on-campus employers and an important layer of support that you might not find in off-campus jobs.
Develop Important Skills
Not only will you earn money by working on campus, but you’ll also start building important skills that will help you throughout your career. You might not think working at UTEP would have anything to do with your future career as a physician, writer, accountant, or whatever your professional goal maybe, but dig a little deeper and you’re sure to find many connections. By working at UTEP, you will develop essential transferable skills like time management, customer service, communication, leadership, and more.
