Campus Recreation is one of the largest employers of students on the UIC campus. With over 300 student employees providing coverage of facilities and programs that operate over 100 hours per week, this large workforce provides many opportunities for employment. Employees are hired as both regular student employees and Federal Work Study employees. Many students qualify for Work Study monies and they don’t even know it. Work Study is a federal program that provides salary relief for departments who hire eligible students. Monies are based on institutional need, and have no effect on student scholarship or other aid based programs. Work Study eligible students are given priority for job placement.
