Welcome Families!

About Student Parent Programs

We understand that being both a parent and a student presents its own unique set of challenges, and we're here to support you. We can help you navigate UMass, get connected to resources, apply for a childcare subsidy, meet other students with families, find kid-friendly educational and cultural activities to do in the community, and more.

To learn more, call, email, or stop by to see us!  We look forward to meeting you!

Support for Student Parents - Spring 2020

We recognize that our student parents are greatly impacted by school and daycare closures as well as other changes caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Student Parent Programs staff are available via email and video conference to offer support and connect you with university and community resources. Email ccampis@umass.edu for childcare funding questions and studentparent@umass.edu for other questions or for additional support. 

See our COVID-19 Student Parent Resource list for information about:

  • Free online educational and enrichment activities for kids
  • Ideas for easy activities to do at home with little ones
  • Free parent support and self care resources 
  • Listing of local organizations that address food and income insecurity issues

Email us at studentparent@umass.edu if you have resources to share - we’ll add them to the list. Check out our Facebook page for weekly tips, activities and resource sharing.
