Student Appointments

The University is committed to providing opportunities for students to obtain paid employment and experience within the University community. The recruitment and hiring of students is the responsibility of the Department Head and/or the faculty/principal researcher, in the case of students hired under a faculty member’s grant. Human Resources processes the Authorization to Hire forms from the departments and approves the student appointment.

Please note that:

  • Student employment is intended to be temporary and/or casual. It is not intended to replace work being carried out by permanent full-time/part-time employees. 
  • In accordance with the Government of Canada International Student Program regulations, international students are permitted to work on campus as long as they are enrolled full-time at the University and have a valid study permit.
  • Students are allowed to have multiple appointments on campus as long as the aggregate hours worked each week do not exceed twenty-four (24) hours. For graduate students including members of CUPE 4580, the aggregate allowable number of hours of paid university-related employment is 240 hours per academic term (Fall, Winter, Summer).
