Cambridge Guide for Student Parents


Welcome to the University of Cambridge Guide for Student Parents. This is intended to be a helpful guide for students with children who are living and studying in Cambridge. It contains information on University and College provision for student parents, advice on financial issues, help with finding appropriate accommodation and health care as well as suggestions for places to visit and activities for children in the area. The guide is not exhaustive, but we hope that the information we have included is useful as a basic guide to the facilities, services and help available for parents in the city and within the University. Life as a student parent in Cambridge can be tough but it is important to remember that a wide variety of help and support is available.

Any further questions can be directed to the University's Childcare Information Service.
