Family Service Office

Consultation and Meetings

Managing children and your studies is not an easy task!

Kiel University actively supports a life-work balance and strives to create an environment which benefits personal planning.

In 2002 the University was first certified as family friendly in a nation-wide “audit familiengerechte hochschule” by berufundfamilie gGmbH. In 2012, Kiel University was awarded this certificate for the fourth time.

The  Family Service Office

offers consultation and support, coordinates existing projects and helps you to create new concepts in order to achieve your life-work balance. We can advise you on the following topics:

  • Studying and children
  • Work and children
  • Child care
  • Parents’ meetings – a way for parents at Kiel University to get connected and support one another

Further information can be found at the brochure “Studieren mit Kind/ern” which is available at the AStA (at Mensa 1) and the Equal Opportunities Office at Kiel University as well as at the faculties. You can also ask for a personal meeting with staff members of the Studentenwerk (at Mensa 1 and 2).
