XIV. General Information

Child Care

The University of Guelph is consciously striving to provide equal opportunity for academically qualified students who are pregnant or have child care responsibilities, and to overcome barriers to full participation by such students in the University community. To this end, the University faculty and administration are sensitive to the need to assist students who are pregnant, or are parents, when unforeseen family responsibilities interfere with their educational endeavours. Students who require special consideration due to pregnancy or child care responsibilities are encouraged to speak to their course instructors or academic counsellors.

There are a number of facilities at the University of Guelph which are part of an on campus child care system designed to meet the need for child care services in the university community. The programs aim to provide a stimulating and caring environment for children while at the same time offering support to families.
