We have two nurseries at the University, making it easier to juggle parenthood and study.
Open 50 weeks of the year, the Day Nursery looks after the children of our students or staff when neither parent can stay at home.
It accommodates children from six weeks old and provides meals from the on-site cook.
Our second nursery, Uni-Tots, looks after children aged from two and a half to five years.
Funding is available for three and four year olds through our partnerships with local councils.
You might also wish to investigate other council approved nurseries.
As nursery places are not guaranteed and are limited, early application is advised.
"As a parent, I found the nursery facilities to be a great help. The staff appreciated the demands we were under at home and in University and were there to offer a sympathetic ear when the stress of essays and exams was taking its toll - on both us and the kids." Sarah Killey, Social Work Student
