On-campus employment is a great way to gain work experience and earn money towards the cost of your education. Every year hundreds of students take part in on-campus employment.

Employment opportunities are only for students who have applied for financial aid through TWU’s Financial Aid Office, and have demonstrated financial need.

For all inquiries regarding Student Employment, please contact the Human Resources Associate for Student Employment, Abraham Jacob​ at Abraham.Jacob@twu.ca.
