The GCC posting will be available on the Careers at UF website (Update: opening in early January 2020) through the University of Florida (, search using the student assistant category).
You may apply before completing your bachelor’s degree but application towards a graduate/professional school at the University of Florida is required to be considered. Proof of admission to a graduate/professional level program deadline is June 1, 2020 as a contingency for the position.

Yes! We can make arrangements to pick you up at the Gainesville (GNV) airport. Please let us know in advance if you will need transportation to and from the airport
Travel will not be reimbursed. If you fly in to Gainesville (GNV) your transportation to and from the airport is covered by our department. Note: Some academic departments offer travel reimbursements to students who are highly recruited. If this is the case, it might be a good idea to schedule your visit with your academic department around the dates of the interview with Housing (either before or after).
We offer two options for lodging at no cost. First, you may stay in a guest room, which is a room located within a UF residence hall. Second, you may stay with a current student staff member in his or her graduate apartment. We will search diligently for one of these two locations for you if you are interested, however we cannot guarantee these options will be available. Feel free to make your own arrangements to stay in a hotel or with friends. We can provide a list of hotels in Gainesville for your convenience.
