Welcome UC San Diego Students with Dependents.

The University of California San Diego (UCSD) Students With Dependents website is here to assist students, who may identify as a student parent, caregiver, and guardian, in navigating the resources available to them on and off campus.

Students with dependents have many responsibilities. The University of California San Diego supports your academic achievement amidst the unique challenges and additional responsibilities you face as a Student with Dependent(s).

Browse through the web pages in this section to become familiar with the services and resources that are available to you as a Student with Dependent(s).

Connect with other Students with Dependents

Follow us on our official UCSD Students with Dependents Facebook Page. We will use this page to post events and also connect followers.

If you are looking for a student-run group to connect with other Students with Dependents, then you can visit the Students Parents At UCSD Facebook group (student-run).

If you play the dual role of being a faculty or staff member, or you would like to connect with just other parents, guardians, and caregivers, then please check out the Parents, Guardians & Caregivers Association - UC San Diego Facebook page to connect with other students who have families for advice, support, friends, and much more.

Statement on Violence in Washington, D.C. 

On January 6th, 2021, the Chancellor released a campus-wide statement condemning the violence perpetrated by a mob of rioters who breached security at the U.S. Capitol. We, along with Chancellor Khosla, are disturbed by these acts of sedition and by the stark contrast in yesterday’s response by law enforcement, particularly when compared with their actions toward Black and Brown communities who gathered in recent months to protest systemic racism and injustice. It was a stark reminder that there is much work yet to be done. Student Affairs Case Management Services sees and stands with our students and staff of color during this incredibly difficult time. We acknowledge the anger, exhaustion, frustration, and pain that you may be experiencing, and we understand the re-traumatization that occurs when events like this take place.We encourage you to take the space you need to process and grieve the events of January 6th, 2021. If you or someone you know needs additional support, please reach out to the you Dean of your college or the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs for the Graduate Division. We are here for you. 




In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to comply with county orders and university policies, we will not be hosting any in-person meetings or gatherings for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020.

We want to acknowledge the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. Their deaths have reinforced a collective sense of shock, anger, uncertainty, and grief, pointedly demonstrating that racism and racial inequality are among the most pressing challenges we face. We recognize that this is a difficult time for students, especially UCSD Black students, and we affirm the statement issued by the University. 

Additional campus resources that you can also turn to for help and support include:

It is only as a community, acting together, with courage and compassion, that we will have the wisdom and strength to bring about lasting and meaningful change. Our team is committed to listening, learning, and standing in solidarity.
