Hillcrest and Burge Market Places are our contract dining facilities and 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 (schedules are set at the beginning of semester, but you can swap shifts for more flexibility). Also, our student staff can enjoy their breaks from class and go home as the Marketplaces are not open during academic break periods.
