If you’re sitting in your dorm room with an extra hour on hand, this might be the perfect time to earn some extra cash.

1. Check out on-campus paid research opportunities – Researchers often need participants and are willing to pay student volunteers around $10/hour. It’s the easiest way to make quick money with no commitment to an actual job.

2. Desk jobs around campus – If you know you consistently have a couple hours between classes, hourly desk jobs may be for you. You may have to man a desk at the entrance of a dormitory or an academic building, but -either way- it’s super low commitment. If you have a nice supervisor, they might let you do some homework while you work too!
