Daycare places in kindergartens

The KiTa am Nordcampus as well as the ASC´s Kinderbewegungshaus provide bilingual childcare, whereas the UMG´s Kindertagesstätte provides opening hours from 4pm to 6pm. If you are interested in applying for one of these daycare places, please register under the application portal.

The Emergency child care offers child care free of charge in emergency situations for parents who are deemed (occupationally) indispensable by the university. The provision of qualified day care personnel takes place at short notice through the Child Day Care Agency (Kindertagespflegebörse). Those authorised to apply are members and associates of the university. Please contact the Child Day Care Agency in advance.

The University of Göttingen offers subsidies on request for the cost of child care resulting from business trips or conference trips or due to participation in training and qualification courses.

The Family Service offers advice and support to institutes, central facilities and other institutions of the Georg August University for the organisation of child care during events arranged by the university and can grant subsidies on request for the costs of the child care provided during events organised by the university at the location in Göttingen.

This includes time periods in the afternoon, evening or at the weekend. Students are given special advice by the Child Day Care Agency and are individually supported in the search for child minders. On request students can receive subsidies for the costs of child care.

Holiday childcare
In addition to the holiday program of the Hochschulsport, the University offers two different holidaycare programs. In the upcoming summer holidays, the children can either explore nature and learn lots about the farm life with animals or be a part of a media workshop and produce their own film.

The Presidential Board resolved to develop the Guide to Child Care at the University of Göttingen. The guide gives detailed information on the diverse offers of child care provided by the university.
