ASUU Child Care Program - The Associated Students of the University of Utah (ASUU) Student Child Care Program, partially subsidized by student fees, is committed to providing quality childcare options for student parents while they attend class. The center maintains a friendly and supportive environment with staff that attend to the developmental well being of each child.
