Get-togethers for students with children

Once a semester, there is a virtual Studying with Children get-together for students with children or those who want to have children. Children are, of course, welcome at the monitors. Often, the Family Service Centre, the AStA's Student with Children Officer and the Studierendenwerk's Social Counselling Service also take part. At these meetings, we inform you about new regulations, are available to answer your questions and exchange information about the concerns and needs of students with children.

In addition, once a semester on a Saturday there is a brunch or coffee meeting for students with children. This event is organised in cooperation with the Studierendenwerk and the Hochschule Darmstadt and takes place at different locations. There are stalls set up by different counselling services, and there is food, drink and children's entertainment.

The exact dates for these events will be published here under “News”. If you register for the Moodle course “Studieren mit Kind”, you will always receive an invitation via the forum.

No dates have been set at the moment.
