Priority will be given to new full time Warwick University employees who are relocating from overseas, or staff who are within 3 months of their employment start date.

Existing full time University staff members will be considered subject to availability.


  • Overseas full time study Post Graduate students, new to Warwick University with Children.
  • Full time study Undergraduate students with Children.
