U-M faculty, staff, and students can search Care.com profiles of local caregivers for children, seniors, pets, and more. The monthly premium membership fee for Care.com is covered by U-M for current, regular employees and students. See this membership PDF for more information.
- Employees and students are responsible for the full cost of care.
Regular (non-temporary) employees can register at umich.care.com using their U-M uniqname.
Current U-M students who are not also U-M student employees must register via our student sign-up for Care.com access. Please note: part-time or full-time, U-M student employees (e.g. GSIs, GSRAs) are already in the system as employees and do not need to sign up.
For login and email address troubleshooting, or other technical issues, please contact the Care.com Care at Work department directly: email firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific concern and, if you wish, a phone number where you can be reached. Emailing them is preferred, though you can also try to reach them by calling 855-781-1303 (follow the prompts to backup care).
Temporary employees, retirees, and alumni are not eligible for this benefit.
