Students with Children

The Office of the Dean of Students strives to connect undergraduate and graduate students who are parents - or are facing/considering that prospect - with available resources, including each other, to help further their education, health, and well-being.

The Office can also help connect students with academic, health, and other resources at the University and beyond - and we are available to work with other offices at the University. We advocate for the needs of students with children in a variety of forums.

In addition, The Office of the Dean of Students works with students one-on-one and facilitates a larger Students with Families group where students can share information, concerns, or simply socialize with other student-parents. If you are interested in making an appointment to meet with the Dean, or you would like more information about the Students with Families group or email list-serv, contact Dean Eramo at eramo@virginia.edu or by calling 434-924-7133. Our offices are located on the 2nd floor of Peabody Hall, between Alderman Library and Monroe Hall.

Child-care Alternatives

Undergraduate Babysitters (UB), launched this past year, matches undergraduate students with fellow students who have children, for regular weekly or biweekly babysitting times. If interested—either as a student parent or as a potential babysitter—please contact Lauren Huff leh7bu@virginia.edu.
