Family Support

Staff parents and carers

UCL offers enhanced benefits for UCL Staff who are carers or have children.

Work-Life Balance

IEHC acknowledges that its staff, students and visitors are most productive when they have achieved a work-life balance that enables them to meet their responsibilities outside work. 

Parents and Carers Together
UCL Parents and Carers Together network

UCL Parents and Carers Together (PACT) is a volunteer-led grassroots network that brings parents and carers together on one platform to address the needs of a diverse community. The network directly meets the second strategic objective of the UCL 2020 Strategy: to 'improve the consistency of experience and support of staff and students around pregnancy, maternity, paternity, childcare and caring responsibilities.'

Student parents

If you're a student and a parent UCL can provide support and facilities to help you manage your studies alongside family life, including nursery care and family accommodation.
