KidsBox - the mobile kids' room

The KU has two exemplars of the KidsBox. The KidsBox is designed as a mobile kids' room and equipped for babies and children up to primary school age (https://my-kidsbox.de/). You can use the KidsBox if you exceptionally need to bring your children to work or study or if you want to organise childcare for an event.

In Eichstätt, the KidsBox is located in the Aula in the KG building and should primarily be used in this buildung. Due to its size it is very difficult to transport the box to other buildings. However, materials can be taken out of the KidsBox at any time for use in other buildings.

If you would like to use the KidsBox either in Eichstätt or in Ingolstadt, please contact Veronika Hecht (veronika.hecht(at)ku.de).

In the canteen, families will find a separated area where (small) children can play while their parents eat. The play corner contains various toys for small children and some books. We kindly ask you to clean up the play corner after use and leave it tidy.

Newborn children of students and employees of KU receive a welcome from the university: among other things, the original KU baby romper suit as well as information material for parents, which the ZFG has compiled. The greeting is packaged in a box that was hand-painted by children in the Uni-Kinderhaus. To make sure that you and your baby receive the welcome box, please contact the ZFG personally (veronika.hecht(at)ku.de oder eva.vierring(at)ku.de).
