Generally staff are expected to work 8-5 with a 1 hour unpaid lunch. But it depends on each difference department and on your manager whether you can change that schedule.

As a part-time tutor, it was very nice to have a complete control of your hours and work schedule. It was also nice that you get the fixed schedule for the whole quarter around my class schedules, which was more predictable and easier to plan my day
