To provide the greatest number of students with an opportunity to work on campus, all employed students (FWS and regular pay) will be eligible to earn up to $1,150 per term, which averages approximately 10 hours weekly for the full term. Available campus positions will be posted on WorkLink at least one week before the start of term. Reminder: Positions on campus are for one term only, so if you worked on campus last term and would like to work on campus this term, check with your supervisor regarding their plans to rehire.
Returning students, first-year students who do not have a Federal Work Study (FWS) award, and students seeking additional hours/positions may apply for campus jobs with these steps. If you have not worked on campus before, you need to first visit the Payroll Office in Barn 101.
Students who wish to supplement their campus earnings or who are not working on campus but wish to have a job should consider seeking employment with local businesses. The FWT & CDO has a list of local businesses and their contact information listed in the Document Library of WorkLink. You may also check jobs in WorkLink listed under “Off campus-Local to Bennington” for postings.
The Bennington Card
The Bennington Card is your official identification card and is required for students to access essential campus services and facilities, including meal plans, library privileges, and access to the Meyer Recreation Barn. The Bennington Card also has an optional declining balance account feature. By adding funds to the Bennington Card declining balance account, students can make cashless purchases on and off campus.
