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.
