Parental Accommodation Policy
The Graduate School has instituted a Parental Accommodation Policy which provides academic milestone extensions and, in most circumstances, continued financial support to eligible students.

Childcare Resources
The Office of Work/Life provides resources for Northwestern parents as they locate quality and affordable childcare. Many of these resources are available to graduate students.

Job Resources for Spouses and Partners
Relocating to a new city for PhD study is a big decision, and when a spouse, partner and/or children are coming with a student, this decision is even more important to the family. We have resources for families, which we hope will make their transition to the Evanston-Chicago area much easier.
