At each Furtwangen University location, you will find a contact person to help with any family-related issues on campus. Not only does HFU focus on the concerns involved in bringing up children while working/studying, but we also place great emphasis on childcare. The relevant staff will be happy to provide you with childcare-related advice and support.

In addition, we strive to keep improving the infrastructure on campus: baby changing tables, quiet rooms, high chairs, and toy boxes are available to all university members.  

Sometimes, even the best childcare is not enough. In case you need to bring your child into the university, HFU provides a number of different on-campus facilities:
