Child-Friendly Study Areas

UC San Diego offers 2 child-friendly study rooms — rooms with children's books and activities where you may supervise your children while you study.


  • Please be aware that these rooms are designed to be used with direct adult supervision only.
  • Parents, not the university, are completely responsible for their child(ren)'s safety and actions at all times.
  • Never leave a child of any age unattended for any period of time, as such action would jeapordize the availability of this service. 

Please clean up after yourselves and do not leave outside toys or food inside the room when you leave.

Nursing mothers and fathers with bottle-fed infants are welcome! Crawling infants may crawl around while the parent studies.

Happy family study time!
