Jobs on Campus

Posted on Monday, April 15th, 2019

We do what we can to help make paying for university easier on you (and your wallet). We offer entrance scholarships, in-course bursaries, and encourage you to apply for OSAP; but we recognize that some students are looking for a way to earn money while they study.

Luckily, we offer several on-campus part-time job opportunities – so you can earn while you learn!

Work Study Program

This program allows you to work on campus and gain hands-on experience while earning cash. It’s also a great way to network and meet people on campus.

Visit the Student Financial Services website for details on who is eligible as well as when and how to apply.

4,000+ part-time jobs

Our more than 4,000 on campus jobs offer plenty of opportunity for growth, getting involved and skill-building. Whether you’re interested in serving up lattés in an on-campus eatery, helping a prof do research, or showcasing your lifeguard skills at the pool, we’ve got you covered.

Undergraduate Research Assistantship (URA) program

This program allows you the opportunity to experience Guelph in the summer, while gaining research experience AND earning money. These full-time positions begin in May and typically run for 16 weeks.

The application process for this competitive program begins in December of each year so be sure to check the financial services website for details.

Co-operative Education

The great thing about co-op at U of G is that you have the flexibility to find and apply to jobs that suit your program of study and personal interests. While students have the flexibility to apply for jobs across Ontario, out-of-province and even internationally, some students choose to work right here on campus!

Visit the Recruit Guelph website for more information on co-op and to check out current opportunities.

If you have questions about our Work Study or URA programs, get in touch with Student Financial Services at For questions related to finding jobs on Recruit Guelph contact Co-op and Career Services at
