In 2021, the Family-Friendly KU will offer vacation programs during the Pentecost vacations, the fall vacations, and on the Day of Penance and Prayer - if the Corona situation makes it possible. Children of KU students and employees who are between six and twelve years old can participate.

As in the last autumn vacations, we are planning an entertaining program for the children, which - if it is possible due to Corona - can also be booked individually for each day. The vacation program will mainly take place in Eichstätt, but there will be one excursion to Ingolstadt per vacation week. The care will be provided by experienced caregivers from Mobile Familie e.V.

If necessary, care can also be organized for kindergarten children (by babysitters or in small groups).

Registration is now possible for the autumn vacations and the Day of Penance and Prayer. Please klick here.

If you have any questions, you can of course contact the Family-Friendly KU at any time: familie(at)ku.de

The basis for this planning is a survey that the ZFG conducted together with the KU's Women's and Equal Opportunity Officer at the end of January/beginning of February among KU staff and students. The results of this survey are available on the intranet (in German language only).

In order to master the balancing act between family and career or studies, many parents are dependent on external childcare services. The KU cooperates with several institutions to assist its members in finding a childcare place. Here you can find a list of these cooperation facilities as well as other childcare facilities at the locations Eichstätt and Ingolstadt. If you have any questions regarding childcare, please contact the ZFG (Veronika Hecht or Eva Vierring).

KU Internal Tutoring Exchange

The KU Internal Tutoring Exchange is designed to bring together KU students who offer tutoring and KU affiliates who are looking for tutoring or homework assistance for their child/children.

The platform is set up as a course on ILIAS and can be accessed via this link (please log in to ILIAS first and then click on the link):


In the section "I offer ..." KU-students can indicate in which subjects and for which grades and types of schools they would like to offer tutoring or homework support and leave a contact option. Parents can then either contact the students directly and/or create their own entry in the "I am looking for ..." section.

The project is just starting, so there are no or very few entries yet. We would be very happy if the exchange fills up soon and thus many pupils can receive support!

If you have any questions, please contact the ZFG (Dr. Veronika Hecht or Eva Vierring, familie(at)ku.de).

There is also a tutoring exchange at KU that aims at bringing together students and schools. You can reach it here: https://padlet.com/ZLB/studentsforstudents
