Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Student organizations can get funding from the Finance Board to sponsor ticketed events. Once the student organization gets funding, it will work with its Office of Student Life liaison to get the tickets purchased and advertise to their fellow students. Do that by submitting by following this process.

Tickets typically go on sale at 1:00 p.m. on a given day and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis online until the tickets run out.

Every student organization is required to have at least one adviser. Advisers are expected to be Illinois Tech faculty or staff members who are familiar with and supportive of the mission and vision of the student organization with which they are affiliated. If you are interested in becoming a student organization adviser, please reach out to us!

Space reservations for student organizations are handled by the Office of Student Life. To make a reservation, you will need to put in an Event Form on HawkLink. To do this, go to your student organization's HawkLink page, click on “Events” and submit a new form. We ask that all reservation requests are put in two weeks prior to your event. If you are hosting a larger event, remember that you can book space up to a year out, so get your request in as soon as you can!

The Office of Student Life has many opportunities for student employees. Our office employs students to work in the Commuter Lounge (The Bog during the day) and in The Bog on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.

Any jobs that the Office of Student Life has open will be posted on the Handshake website through Career Services. All applications are taken through this website, so make sure to get your résumé uploaded and reviewed early!
