On-Campus Employment

Current Babson students in F-1 and J-1 status who are maintaining valid status may be eligible for on-campus employment. Opportuinities range from administrative positions in offices to working at the ice skating rink. Positions can be found online through the Student Employment Office.


On-campus employment encompasses jobs that are paid directly by Babson College or direct affiliates.  On-campus employment is limited to part-time (up to 20 hours/week) during the academic year; it may be full time (over 20 hours/week) during official college vacation.


A professor paying a student directly to help with a project IS NOT considered on-campus employment. 

Employment at the Babson Campus Store (run by Follett), Babson Dining Services (run by Chartwells) or the Babson Executive Conference Center is considered on-campus employment BECAUSE these companies in these locations are contracted to provide direct service to Babson students. ‚Äč

  • F-1 STUDENTS do not need authorization to work on-campus (off-campus employment requires authorization). However, to apply for a Social Security number(SSN), students must complete and submit the On-Campus Employment Form (pdf).

  • J-1 STUDENTS must receive authorization BEFORE beginning on- campus (and off-campus) employment and report their employer information to the Glavin Office through the On-Campus Employment Form (pdf).

You must have received your SSN and completed all human resources paperwork before beginning your on-campus employment.

Meet with an international student adviser in the Glavin Office BEFORE beginning any employment to be sure that you do not accidentally engage in unlawful employment.
