Family-friendly university

International students, professors and employees who bring their children with them to Germany will find a welcoming and supportive environment at HTWK Leipzig. In recent years, we have stepped up our efforts to help parents balance their academic and family responsibilities.

Baby changing stations can now be found in several men’s and women’s restrooms on campus, for example, and our sport and fitness programme includes special activities for children. There is an area reserved for families and children in the student dining hall, and the university library boasts a child-friendly study room. Childcare services are provided free of charge during some of the University’s public events to enable all students, employees and guests to attend.

To assist members of the HTWK community with finding day care and preschool options in Leipzig, we are working to build collaborations with child care providers located close to campus. Most importantly, we have established a family advising centre ('Für die Familie') to coordinate our activities and provide counselling and support to families on campus.

In recognition of our ongoing efforts to create a family-friendly work and study environment, HTWK Leipzig recently received the 'Family-Friendly University Certificate' in August 2010. This certificate is awarded to universities and other public and private employers on behalf of the Hertie Foundation as a result of a successful completion of a Work and Family Audit process.
