Student Back-Up Care

UCSF Family Services and the Student Services Fee Advisory Committee are excited to share with you that UCSF has expanded Bright Horizons Back-Up Care program to students! While we know that many UCSF student families are seeking longer-term alternate care as a result of COVID-19 school and care disruptions, we hope this program will help with short-term needs and encourage you to review other child care resources available to the UCSF community at this web page.

The program offers high-quality back-up care when you need to be at school or work and your regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable.

Additional Family Services resources include:
