Student Employment: Join the Campus Life Family!

"Working for Campus Life was more than just a job. There I found not only valuable work experience and leadership opportunities, but also lifelong friends." Casey Challender, UNCW Class of 2012

Our Vision

The Campus Life Student Employment Program develops a positive work community that demonstrates critical thinking, problem-solving and effective customer service skills. Additionally, we provide ongoing, specific and purposeful opportunities to help our student employees identify and build the core skills employers indicate that they want successful job candidates to possess.

Campus Life hires students who love UNCW and are committed to providing excellent customer service to the UNCW community and to our guests. The Campus Life family is committed to providing an educational work experience that will encourage your growth, complement your studies and help you to be competitive in the job market after you graduate. We support our student employees in reaching personal and professional goals. If you seek a rewarding work experience on campus that will help you gain job experience, build a variety of skills and earn valuable references, we urge you apply for a position with Campus Life. 

To be eligible for employment, you must be currently registered as an undergraduate or graduate student. You must have a 2.5 GPA to apply, unless you are a new freshman or transfer student in your first semester at UNCW.
