Parent-child rooms and breastfeeding facilities

Parent-child rooms and breastfeeding facilities are small oases in everyday university life for parents, both students and staff, and their children. Here, they can take a break for baby changing, breastfeeding or simply to rest, and make good use of any gaps in their everyday itinerary, for example if both mother and father are studying and the child has to switch parents on campus between two courses. We are working to ensure that these facilities will soon be available on all our campuses.
