Guest and Conference Housing Employment

Guest & Conference Housing (GCH) has employment opportunities every summer. Student staff positions are a terrific way for students to go to school, live on campus, and work during the summer. Internships are also 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 in maintaining 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-out 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. Duty is similar to Community Assistant duty, where you are responsible for doing 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 meeting, group meetings, and individual meetings with supervisor. Other duties as assigned.

PLEASE NOTE: This is your primary employment for the summer. Outside activities are limited to 10 hours per week (With approval from SCA’s supervisor).
