Guest and Conference Housing Employment

Student staff positions are a terrific way for students to go to school, live on campus, and work during the summer. Guest & Conference Housing (GCH) has employment opportunities every summer. Internships are available for graduate-level students studying in a related field.

Summer Conference Assistant

As a Summer Conference Assistant (SCA), you have the opportunity to work with professional staff to maintain the daily operation of the residence halls, as well as network with the various conference groups that stay on campus. The SCA position is often a stepping-stone to other leadership positions on campus.

The SCA position is posted in the Spring semester. To apply, visit the Student Employment page.

Essential functions include: working at a front desk, answering telephones, assisting visitors, conducting check-in and check-outs for guests, building inspection (maintenance and cleanliness), entering online maintenance requests, light cleaning, setup of guest rooms, inventory control, and other tasks as needed. SCAs serve in a duty rotation for a specific hall. SCA duty is similar to Community Assistant duty, where you are responsible for doing safety walks, locking doors and gates as needed, and serving in on-duty rotation 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. on weekdays, and 24-hours per day on weekends and holidays. SCAs are required to attend weekly staff meetings, team meetings, and individual meetings with their supervisor.

Employment locations include the Polytechnic, Tempe & West campuses. Aside from monetary compensation, SCAs will also be provided with housing accommodations within a summer residence hall for the duration of employment. SCAs MUST live in their assigned residence hall.

PLEASE NOTE: This is your primary employment for the summer. Outside activities are limited to a maximum of 10 hours per week (with approval from the SCA’s supervisor). Outside activities include club involvement, class, other employment, internships, and any other outside associations. Due to the need for flexible scheduling (24-hours a day, seven days a week) in order to accommodate conference groups’ varying needs,  other employment must  be limited and all class/work schedules MUST be approved in writing in advance by the SCA’s supervisor.

As a member-organization, ASU participates yearly in the ACUHO-I Internship program through opportunities with GCH.  The internship program is a three-month program (spanning from May to August).

 As an ACUHO-I Intern, you serve on the GCH leadership team and work closely with a variety of housing professionals from different functional units including, but not limited to: Facilities Management, Residential Life, Occupancy Management, Front Desk Operations and a variety of third party partners.
