Student Parents

A student parent is any student enrolled at the University of Auckland that has children or is the primary caregiver of children under 16 years old. You may be studying full-time or part-time, be an undergraduate or postgraduate student. Regardless of your level of study, if you have/care for children under 16 you are student parent.

Parentspaces and breastfeeding spaces are available throughout the University. To see the different locations, click here.

Student parents in short term or unexpected financial emergencies may be eligible for an AUSA hardship grant of up to $400 depending on the circumstances. Click here for more information.

AUSA understands that student parents face extra challenges when pursuing study. Please let us know of any issues that you think we might be able to help you with or address by contacting our Welfare Vice-President at
