Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - The Central Women's Representative


HU wants to make it possible to reconcile family, study and work time regardless of a person’s sex or gender as a matter of course.

A number of measures have been implemented at HU in order to create adequate conditions for people who are involved in family care and work or study at HU.

The Family Support Centre that was inaugurated in 2010 is primarily responsible for these measures. The “Humbolde” are a childcare facility for children whose parents study at HU and recently, the university opened a daycare centre (KiTa) in Berlin-Mitte. The university offers scholarships for transition periods or a return to the doctoral thesis after family care time in order to enable the doctoral students to finish their theses.
