In accordance with its Catholic tradition, the KU considers family friendliness an important part of its mission statement and has been working intensively for about 20 years to improve the compatibility of family and university as a place to study and work. In 2004, it was the first Bavarian university to receive the award "Family Friendly University". After many years of successful completion of the audit "Family Friendly University", KU joined the Best Practice Club "Familie in der Hochschule e. V." in 2016. It supports its students and its employees to lead a good life in and with families in all phases of life and qualification.




Welcome box for KU-newborns

Newborn children of students and employees of KU receive a welcome from the university: among other things the original KU baby romper suit!


The KU has two exemplars of the KidsBox - the mobile kids' room. The KidsBox is used at events or when you have to bring your children to your place of work or study.
