This section provides information for all members of the HU community who are balancing their studies and/or career with familial responsibilities. It covers a range of topics such as different types of financial support and government benefits; the HU’s options for configuring a flexible academic or work schedule; the maternity protection period for pregnant women or the care of relatives.


If you have specific questions or want more information on the topics addressed here, we recommend scheduling an appointment at the Family Support Centre. We offer counselling in person, on the phone or by e-mail; please see the “Contact and Counselling” for more information.
