Meet other parents

Meeting other student parents and their children is a great way to make new friends, and an opportunity to offer one another mutual support and take part in family-friendly social activities.

Meet online

There are several places you could meet student parents online:

  • Portal
    By joining the Student Parents Group on the Portal you could:
    • email other student parents 
    • take part in group discussions
    • share experiences, information and ideas
      (click “Groups” in the top left-hand corner, then “Groups Index”, “Student Support”, then “Student Parents”).

Meet in person

There's also a number of other ways you can meet other student parents in person:
