University Dining

Hillcrest and Burge Market Places serve over 10,000 meals each day to students and guests.  Associates employed in the Market Places perform a variety of tasks including cooking, attending to the dining rooms, cashiering, restocking food, and washing dishes.  These two facilities employ the most students within University Housing & Dining, so you can meet a lot of people and work a flexible schedule.  Also, our student staff can enjoy their breaks from class and go home as the market places are not open during academic break periods.
