Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Family Support Centre

Family and Studies

Do you have one or more children? Are you expecting a child? Are you planning to start a family in the near future? Are you taking care of relatives? The Family Support Centre helps student parents to overcome the many challenges of studies, family - and the workplace.

The Family Support Centre provides you with advice on organizing and financing your studies, as well as studying abroad. You will receive information on your rights (such as compensation for disadvantages, "Nachteilsausgleich"), as well as childcare and state services. The Family Support Centre will also refer you to other counselling services, for example those offered by the university or Student Union (RefRat) or the studierendenWERK.

Here you will find information on:

You can find information resources on the Humboldt Universität’s support services for students with children - such as the 'die humbolde' student daycare centre, the ‘Adopted Grandparents’ project and the family courses of the university sport - in the ‘Support’ section.

You can find information resources on the family-friendly infrastructure at Humboldt-Universität (family rooms and changing facilities, play bags, free children’s meals, etc.) in the  ‘On Campus with Kids’ section.

For information on the Family Festival or the recurring ‘Studying with Family’ information seminar, both organised by the Family Support Centre, please see the ‘Events’ page.
