Employment

Working in University Housing is a uniquely rewarding experience. Our staff members center their work around our students and enhancing the experience they have in our residence halls. Staff members are dedicated to our students and to each other, creating a comprehensive approach to our work. Our professional staff members are afforded many opportunities to grow and develop in their professional and personal lives. Whether teaching a course, presenting a training session, attending conferences or networking with peers on campus, we encourage our staff members to continue learning through the work they do.

Working with Georgia Southern University Housing provides experience that will help you after college through practice of responsibility, confidentiality, and time management, just for a start. Your experience working as a student employee will help you in the future because it indicates to employers that you are responsible, experienced, and capable.

Being a part of Georgia Southern University’s Housing employment team involves many perks as a student. One of the most important benefits includes GS Housing’s observation that you are a student first. This means that as a student employee, you will never be scheduled to work during a time that you have classes or more than 25 hours a week, ensuring that you will have plenty of time to be responsible to your first priority at Georgia Southern, your education. Georgia Southern University offers training sessions that are as interactive and entertaining as they are informative, preparing you for any situation that may arise on the job. Our student employees work closely with students, as well as staff, providing a safe and friendly work environment.
