Studying with children/family

Having a child doesn’t represent an obstacle to studying anymore. Since 2008 the WHZ has been a certified family-friendly university. In addition to kindergarten and day-nursery places the university offers students and staff with children – or with other relatives they have to care for – a recreation room for parents and children, contact, breastfeeding and play rooms, a mini children’s library on the Scheffelberg Campus as well as a children’s sports group and children’s parties at Easter and Christmas. On top of that, it is possible to apply for a “free meal card” from the Student Services (Studentenwerk Chemnitz-Zwickau) for children up to the age of 6.
