Supporting pregnant students and students with a child is our particular concern. With our offers we contribute to a family-friendly university. We support new childcare offerings at University Westend and Riedberg, at Offenbach University of Art and Design and at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences: From a nursery, which may be used by parents with self-responsibility, over an hourly supervision up to a daycare centre nearby.
These initiatives were enabled through a subsidy of the Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts as well as financial resources of the respective university and Studentenwerk Frankfurt am Main.
We may also inform you about:
- leave of absence from your studies due to maternity leave/parental leave or care
- opportunities for financing your studies
- Wimportant contact points for pregnant women and parents
For specific matters connected to your studies – e.g. mandatory internships in laboratories, the reasonable time for a leave or the possibility of part-time studies, please contact your study guidance or faculty.
