Student Employment

In Announcements, by , on February 27th, 2023

Student employment plays an important role in the day to day operations of the university. Niagara University hires a few hundred students annually into student temp roles (non work- study positions). In order to protect the students and the university from a liability perspective, it is imperative we follow the appropriate hiring process BEFORE we allow students to work on campus. The process is as follows:

1. Notify Tina Johnston in the Career Center the name of the student you are hiring. Tina can be contacted at (716)286-8530 or
2. Complete a student temp hiring form and send it to the Controller’s office (attached)
3. If a student has never worked on campus before, the student will need to visit the Career Center in Academic Complex 125 and complete a new hire packet and furnish required ID for the federal I-9. 
4. Departments must wait for approval from Tina Johnston that a student can start working
5. Onboard the student

Please DO NOT allow a student to work until you have received confirmation that all the required paperwork is complete.

If you have any questions, please contact Tina Johnston in the Career Center at or 716.286.8530.
