Student Job Board

Our job board lists many off-campus opportunities and some, but not all, on-campus postings. Our open job market means that any student, regardless of financial need, has the opportunity to work in any job on-campus for which he or she is qualified. We have more than enough positions available for all the students who want work.

Student Job Facts

All students may work during the academic year and most of our students do.  MIT students work both on-campus in department offices, labs and centers as well as off-campus in the community.

Undergraduate students are expected to help finance their education and working on campus is one of the options available to them. About two-thirds of the undergraduates work, earning about $1,700 a term for 10 hours of work a week.

Many graduate students work in research assistantships and teaching assistantships through their departments and are compensated for the services they provide with a stipend in addition to their tuition.

If you are an international student, your student visa restricts you to on-campus employment at no more than 20 hours/week during the term.
