Study with child

Eine junge Frau läuft mit einem Kind auf dem Arm einen Weg entlang. Im anderen Arm trägt sie einen Block. Sie hat einen kleinen Rucksack auf dem Rücken. Hinter ihr laufen zwei junge Männer und eine junge Frau. Alle lachen.

In Germany, the proportion of students with children is around six percent. Of course, balancing studies, childcare and often employment is a particular challenge. That's why it's especially important for you to be well informed about all the help available!

We offer you affordable family apartments in the dormitories near your university at many locations. In Kiel, Flensburg and Lübeck, you can have your children looked after in one of our daycare centers. We also welcome children in our dining halls. There are high chairs, play areas, nappy-changing facilities and free children's meals. You can find out more about this under the heading Children's meals.

By the way: Our counseling center in Mensa II in Kiel is officially a "breastfeeding-friendly place" of the city of Kiel.

Or feel free to take advantage of our student life counseling service to get support in your individual situation. The following questions are often asked:

  • How can I reconcile studying and raising children?
  • How will my student financing and housing situation change?
  • What financial aid can I apply for?
  • Where can I get what kind of help?

You can find a detailed overview of counseling services and contact points at your university location, about financial aid, legal principles and information about childcare in our compact brochure Studying with a Child.

We advise you!
