The University of Southampton

Parents and carers

Within Physics & Astronomy we have several policies and amenities in place to support parents and carers. For example, we have defined core working hours, which also covers the sending and answering of e-mails. We have breast-feeding and baby-changing room facilities available for use by all students and staff.  

In addition the University provides access to:

The Early Years Childcare Centre

Parents & Carers Network - The Parents' and Carers' Network (P&CN) aims to support the working lives of colleagues who also have these off-campus responsibilities. Carers include those looking after someone who is unable to care for themselves due to old age or a disability.

Parental Leave -  maternity, parental support, adoption leave and surrogacy.
