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.
