Studying with a child

Studying with a child

Sometimes studying with having a child becomes a big challenge. Especially during the bachelor or master program it is important to have a mentoring point for questions and problems about child care.
The AStA offers the RWTH family service, an extensive consultation for successful studies with children.
Beside supporting you in your search for assistance or a day nanny the parent-service-office provides a contact forum for parents where you can get in contact with other students studying with children.
The AStA also offers an extensive consultation.
The student alliance of the RWTH financially supports a day-care centre and a playgroup for children under 3, which receive predominant the children of the RWTH students. These facilities are: Uni & Kind e.V., Kindertagesstätte Königshügel and Kindertagesstätte an der RWTH e.V..
The student union (Studentenwerk) also offers assistances by a family centre, the day-care centre Pusteblume and the day nursery Piccolino.
