Graduate Student Parents

  • Graduate students should seek services from the Post-Graduate Students’ Society (PGSS). PGSS has a Family Care Caucus which advocates on behalf of graduate students and postdocs who are pregnant or who have children or other dependants. These meetings are open to all members of PGSS. To learn more about their services, visit PGSS Family Care.
  • Some undergraduate degrees are also eligible to access the Thompson House facilities, such as undergraduate students in Law and Medicine.
  • Thompson House is home to PGSS. It is equipped with a Nursing Room with blankets and two rocking chairs, open to all graduate and postdoc students. Contact PGSS in order to gain access to the Nursing Room. 
  • Many PGSS events are family friendly - such as trips to go apple picking or ice skating. Stay in the loop to take party in these events as well as family specific ones.
