Davidson College - On Campus Employment

About Davidson College - On Campus Employment

The Student Employment Office is housed within the Human Resources Department and supports on-campus employment during the academic year and summer break. The office serves as a liaison between students who want to work and departments that need help. In a given academic year, Davidson employs approximately 800 students in more than 60 departments.

Students are strongly encouraged to consider employment during their time at Davidson. Working on campus enriches your education outside of the classroom and helps build relationships with both faculty and staff. Student employment helps develop time-management skills, teamwork, and basic professional readiness.

All students are eligible for on-campus jobs regardless of their financial status. Students receiving Federal Work Study (FWS) awards are given priority over non-FWS students.
