Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP)

The Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP) runs from May - August each year and pairs student workers with groups at Queen's University who wish to create or enhance their web presence.

Getting Started

Who Can Have It?

  • SSWRP students work primarily with WebPublish and Queen's Wiki. If your group is eligible for these services, you are eligible for SSWRP. It is sometimes possible to hire SSWRP students to work with other services. Contact the SSWRP Coordinator (Natasha Redknap) to discuss your specific needs.

Are There Any Costs?

  • The 2016 SSWRP rate is $21/hour. This covers the cost of the students' hourly wage, vacation pay, statutory holiday pay, and training time.
  • Payment is via Queen's account code only.

How Do I Get It?

Additional Information

How does the service work?

  • ITS will do a consultation with you to determine your needs.
  • We will then provide an estimate of the length and cost of your project based on your requirements. Or, you can tell us your budget and we’ll help you to work within it.
  • ITS recruits, trains and supervises summer students. We also provide workspace and equipment for them.
  • You manage your project and guide your student’s day-to-day work.
  • We pay the students and bill you for their time at $21/hour. This covers the cost of the students' hourly wage, vacation pay, statutory holiday pay, and training time.

Note: If SSWRP is not a good fit for your group, we may still be able to assist outside of the program.


  • The program runs from May to August each year. However, interested groups should contact the SSWRP Coordinator (Natasha Redknap) by early March to ensure a place in the program. ITS will do its best to accommodate requests received after this time, but projects are prioritized on a first come, first served basis.
  • Students work a 35 hour work week, Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 4:30 with an hour of unpaid lunch. There is some flexibility in start and end times, based on your group's schedule.
