Parent and Child Room

Your child care worker has just canceled. Your child is sick and can’t go to day care today. These and other unplanned factors can turn child care into a challenge for working parents. That’s why the University of Mannheim has come up with a simple solution: the parent and child room in B6. This room has space for your child to play and rest, and a desk with Internet access for you to work from. That way you can look after your child while you're working.

The parent and child room in B6 is scheduled to open in fall 2017.
