While Queens' is currently unable to provide accommodation suitable for students with children, it is able to offer a number of resources for student parents to draw on. These include:
University Childcare Information Officer
The University's Childcare Information Adviser is available to help all students and staff with children with child-related matters. Information on finding local nurseries, childminders or after-school clubs; University facilities; financial assistance as well as advice on available bursary schemes and College family accommodation for students.
The Adviser also operates email lists to keep parents up to date with childcare information and in touch with each other. Parents interested in joining should email firstname.lastname@example.org
