Student Employment

We offer a number of employment opportunities both on-and-off campus for Roger Williams students. Students are encouraged to work in an area that will complement their chosen majors.

These are jobs around the campus that are open to eligible students at any point in their academic career. Eligibility for Federal Work-Study (FWS) is determined from the information students provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students can work in a particular job for one semester or for all four years.
