About Student Parent Programs

Student Parent Programs (SPP) is committed to helping students who are parenting achieve their goals here at UMass and beyond. UMass understands that being both a parent and a student presents its own unique set of challenges, and we're here to support you!

SPP creates programming and provides support to help student parents navigate UMass, get connected to campus and community resources, access child care and emergency funding, build community, find family-friendly activities, and more.

If you need assistance or have questions, please email studentparent@umass.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!
