Family Matters

The University of Pennsylvania provides multiple programs and services to assist students with children—need-based child care grants, a pilot program for back-up child care, the option to purchase health insurance for partners and dependents, etc.

Students with families are strongly encouraged to contact the Family Resource Center at Penn’s Graduate Student Center for specific information. Their website is familycenter.upenn.edu.
