VETERANS SUPPORT CENTER HAS MOVED
Please be aware that the Veterans Support Center has now moved from Union 162 to Union 418, and Veterans Services has moved from Window 10 of the Student Services Building to Union 418 within the Veterans Support Center for the convenience of our student veterans. Please update any directories, and distribute this change to your faculty and staff so they can point student veterans to the right location in order to access their veteran-related benefits, or handle any veteran-related issues they may have.
We appreciate your support as these veterans transition back in to both civilian, and student life.
U-Match is connecting the university community to seek, provide and trade one-on-one child care needs. New for this fall is a simplified electronic application that can be accessed via the home page at childcare.utah.edu. Those interested can register using their uNID as “looking for a babysitter or nanny” and/or “willing to babysit or nanny.” Once logged in, users can search the growing registry of babysitters and nannies.
“We’re starting to see traffic increase as more students, faculty and staff understand the benefit of this service — especially for parents needing irregular care hours or in-home care,” says Virginia DeSpain, project coordinator for the U’s Child Care and Family Resources office.
