Parental support

We offer flexible working arrangements for all staff.

Our parental leave support program is for both birth parents and their partners, along with adoptive and foster parents. We will support you prior and during your parental leave, before helping you transition back into the workplace.

Parental facilities

We have parenting rooms across all our campuses, equipped with comfortable seating and baby change facilities:

  • R131, Toowoomba campus
  • F144 (Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre), Toowoomba campus
  • A105, Springfield campus
  • H114, Ipswich campus

Parental Support Group

The Parental Support Group was originally set up in response to a request from a staff member who had returned from maternity leave and was finding balancing work and parental care a little challenging. She wanted to get in touch with others who were in a similar situation or who had worked through the experience. Some members have older children at school, others have very young children or babies, and some are sole parents. 

The group welcomes all parents. If you would like to join the group or Parental Support Group email list, please contact inclusion@usq.edu.au
