The Family Resource Center at Penn is a hub for information, resources, activities and advocacy for students and post-docs with children. The Family Center provides a forum for student parents to connect and develop supportive networks, and offers a welcoming environment for Penn students, post-docs, caregivers, and children.
The University provides Emergency Backup Child Care for students and post-doctoral fellows at Penn. Emergency backup care is provided in your home during unexpected or emergency situations that would normally prevent you from completing academic work or training. This resource is open to all students, not just graduate students. To be eligible for backup care, you must first join the Family Resource Center.
