Childcare

Are you looking after a little one while studying at the University of Aberdeen? The University is aware of the extra pressure that this can put on student parents and guardians and, therefore, there are various initiatives in place to help ease this:

  • The Rocking Horse Nursery has places for 78 children at any one time and is located within the Old Aberdeen Campus.
  • The Childcare Fund provides assistance with the formal childcare expenses for dependant children.
  • There is a baby change table available in the disabled toilets downstairs in the Student Union Building.
  • AUSA Family room
    Located in room 007 of the Student Union Building (downstairs, near Student Advice), the parents room is a quiet place for student parents or staff parents to feed their child. In the family room you’ll find highchairs, places to sit and a microwave to heat up food.
