Live and work on campus

Living on campus (rent-free I might add) in an air-conditioned room with electricity, WiFi, a work mobile and a fortnightly allowance sounds like a dream right? Well, it could be your reality!


Our Student Residences Directorate are looking for two Residential Life After Hours Coordinators – one at our Capricornia College on the Rockhampton North campus and the other at our Canefield College on the Mackay Ooralea campus.

Among the many aforementioned perks is the opportunity to lead a Residential Life Team and assist management in maintaining and developing the after-hours residential support service for all students residing on campus.

Meals will also be supplied for the Coordinator at the Rockhampton North campus Capricornia College. Sweet gig, right?


Am I eligible?

If you’re willing to reside in a residential flat located on the Rockhampton North or Mackay Ooralea campus, hold a current Driver’s license and have a passion for enhancing the academic and personal development of our students who reside on campus, then this is the position for you!

Even if you don’t currently live in Rockhampton or Mackay, but have always wanted to, now is the time to do it! Applications are open for all students to apply, provided you are willing to re-locate to either our Rockhampton North or Mackay Ooralea campus.


Where do I sign up?

I am a CQUni alumnus, who graduated back in 2010. Straight after graduating, I took a job in media, and later returned to CQUni working full-time as Student Communications Assistant. I remember all too well the panic fuelled ‘all-nighters’, getting lost on campus, confusion over systems, and the general feeling of being unsure. I'm excited to share my experiences and provide some insights into university life.
