Studying with children

Studying if you have a child is a particular challenge – as a parent, you naturally want to be sure that your child is in safe hands during lecture time.

Studierendenwerk Essen-Duisburg runs a childcare centre on both the Duisburg and the Essen campus. Each takes 50 children of between 4 months and school age, who are looked after by qualified childcare professionals.

The Essen and Duisburg campus also offer another form of childcare provision in its Tiegelkids (Essen), Studikids (Essen) and Campuskids (Duisburg). Campus Mülheim offers the Forscherkids. Children in the age of 4 months up to 3 years can be looked after from childcare professionals in a familiar atmosphere. The caretakting hours are more flexible than in a normal childcare centre.

Advices and Services
On both campuses the Studierendenwerk also offers social advice and counselling services where students can go for support during pregnancy and if they already have children.

Advantages in Cantines and Cafeterias
In all our cantines and cafeterias you have the possibility to heat baby bottles and glasses for your child. Please talk with the stuff at the counter. Further more your child can get an extra children-plate in our cantines. All children up to the age of six can compose their own lunch for 50 Cent.
