Student Employment

Hampshire College Student Working at A Computer

The student employment office is located in the R.W. Kern Center and handles all aspects of student employment for ON and OFF campus positions.

Work Study

Only students who have work-study eligibility as part of their financial aid awards are eligible to work under this program. It is the responsibility of the student to secure employment using the Intranet's student employment listings. Receiving a work-study award does not guarantee a job, but gives the student the opportunity to pursue jobs that may be available. There are a variety of employment opportunities and experiences that will enable students to meet their work-study award eligibility as well as their academic schedule and interests.

Students work an average of 6 hours per week and are paid directly on a bi-weekly schedule according to the time slips they submit on TheHub. The wage rate is $12.00 per hour for all positions for the Fall 2019 semester. The hourly wage will increase to $12.75 beginning January 1, 2020. Students may need to use some of their work-study earnings to satisfy their tuition bills; they have the option to pay directly or sign up for payroll deduction through this office.


Students are required to complete work papers before they begin their employment on or off campus under work-study. All first-time employees at the College must complete the following documents: I-9 form, W-4, M-4, and each job requires a work authorization form (requires login) to be submitted to the student employment office. All of these are available at the student employment office and/or should be provided by the student's employer.
