NEW! Back-Up Care for UCSF Students
Effective July 1, 2021, students have zero co-pays when using in-home and center-based care.
The program offers high-quality back-up care when you need to be at school or work and your regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable.
UCSF Child Care Centers
UCSF Students receive first priority for our four on-site or near-site child care centers (note that there is a wait pool).
Child Care Referral Service
Our experienced counselor will guide you through the often challenging and time-consuming process of finding care and will help identify options that best meet your family’s needs.
