Off-Campus Employment

Off-Campus Student Jobs are federally subsidized by the job location and development (JLD) program sponsored by the University Career Center (UCC) and the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships that locates and develops off-campus job opportunities in Lawrence, Topeka and the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. UCC's goal is to assist University of Kansas students in obtaining off-campus jobs (full or part-time, seasonal, or temporary positions) while they are attending KU, thereby enhancing student success. All off-campus student jobs are posted in KU Career Connections.
