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.

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 Info-Café ‘Studying with Family’, both organised by the Family Support Centre, please see the ‘Events’ page.
