Family

We are aware of the diversity of family life. Therefore, when talking about family, we do not only refer to the nuclear family, but also to single mothers and fathers, cohabitations, same-sex cohabitations, patchwork families, and foster families. You can arrange a personal consultation with us to find individual solutions for better reconciling family and career.

In addition, we offer many services to support you in reconciling your career/studies and your family life.

Parent and Child Room

If your regular caregiver cancels at short notice, just take your child with you to university. In the Parent and Child Room, you can work or study while your child can play.
