Employee Perks

Employee Perks

Along with salary and benefits, the University of Illinois continuously seeks additional benefits to offer employees. These additional benefits are not required of the University and might be called “perks.” Goods, services or privileges granted to employees may be offered in addition to salary and standard benefits. On their own, these perks usually have no cash value, but in conjunction with salary and other benefits may have tax implications, (see policies on employee tuition waivers below). Please consult your campus Human Resources professional or the Office of Business and Financial Services with any questions.

Campus Services and Discounts

Employees receive reduced rates on certain campus events, programs and services and at many off-campus retailers. Perks may include movie passes, tickets to Ravinia, passes to Six Flags Great America theme park, and Dragon Dollars.
