Student Employment

The Student Employment Office (SEO) partners with the Hegi Family Career Center, and faculty, the community, and University departments to create employment opportunities for students.

Over 1,400 students work on campus at SMU throughout the course of each year, in positions all across campus such as: office clerks, library clerks, dining hall and coffee shop help, research assistants for faculty members, website designers, intramurals referees, graders, lifeguards and more.

At SMU, we understand that students work for a variety of reasons. Some students are working to pay towards tuition and rent, others are working for experience or spending money. Each student is different, and it is part of our mission to help students balance their academic goals, social activities and part-time employment.

A current list of on-campus jobs, internships, local part-time, and post-graduation career opportunities can be found at

To view a current list of job opportunities, students are required to set up an account with a valid SMU e-mail address.
