New York University recognizes the particular position of graduate students—juggling coursework and jobs, research and family affairs. This page is designed to offer information on employment for current graduate students at NYU—as well as offer other students information on becoming employees themselves.
To start, you might want to look at GA and Research Assistant Availability positions within each college. The Wasserman Center, again, is a great resource for finding part- and full-time jobs on campus, as well as positions and internships beyond the University.
On the subject of great financial connections on campus, New York University has a host of internal fellowships and scholarships for its graduate students, which are an excellent way to obtain additional funding for the independent research that so distinguishes our school. In addition, Bobst Library offers comprehensive support in locating external grants and fellowships.
As a graduate student, most of your work-related questions and concerns will fall under these categories:
Human Resources: Each school has its own policies and procedures with respect to employee relations. Students are advised to first consult with their advisors or Director of Graduate Studies before calling on University-Wide Human Resources.
Payroll: Located in 726 Broadway, 2nd Floor. See this office for issues about direct deposit, asset management, and other financial matters.
Graduate Representation: Ensure your relationship with NYU remains productive and equitable, through the Student Senators Council and through its Committee on Graduate Affairs.
Space and Equipment Requests: Find out about reserving study spaces in the library; space requests in other University properties are handled individually by the administrators of the building(s). Equipment needs are usually taken care of by the individual schools’ pools of resources.
