University warns students against phishing emails regarding student employment

A new phishing scam on Notre Dame’s campus is targeting students via email, the Office of Information Technologies (OIT) said in an email to the student body Thursday.

The emails appear to be from a Notre Dame professor and offers students a paid job as a research assistant, OIT said in the email. The message invites students to contact the sender by text or email for more details.

OIT said students are advised not to respond to these messages and should delete them “immediately.”

“[The email] did not come from a Notre Dame professor and is a scam,” OIT said in the email. “If you responded to this email, terminate any further correspondence.”

The approved method for students to find employment opportunities is through the University Office of Financial Aid’s website. Students can discover opportunities for research via the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement.

For more information or questions regarding these phishing messages or other unusual emails, contact the OIT Help Desk by phone at 574-631-8111, email at or online at
