The Student Family Center “StuFaz” is a meeting and networking place, a place to go to and a place for counselling and events for (future) students parents who are enrolled at one of the 8 universities/academies in Leipzig. Our Social Counselling Service offers various information events, workshops and counselling for student parents who are of course welcome to bring their children along. However, we do not offer childcare.

The latest information and opening hours will be announced on this webpage or in Studentenwerk Leipzig's Facebook group "Studium mit Kind Leipzig".
