Our Villa Unifratz turns 25!

Our Villa Unifratz joins the ranks of this year's anniversary celebrations: In October, the daycare center celebrates its 25th birthday!

Children's laughter moved into the former manor house in the south of Leipzig for the first time in the winter semester of 1996/97. Since then, the magnificent building in Bornaische Straße has been home to our day-care center Villa Unifratz.

The celebration took place on 1 October 2021: The 25th birthday turned out a little smaller due to Covid-19, but no less beautiful. There were colorful balloons, an exciting puppet show, and homemade cupcakes from our restaurant department. Dr. Andrea Diekhof, Managing Director of Studentenwerk Leipzig, also came by as a well-wisher. The children could take home the confetti balloons at the end of the party.

The student hall of residence Bornaische Straße 138, which houses Villa Unifratz, is mainly home to students with children, most of whom attend the day-care center amidst greenery. A total of 30 children (from the end of maternity leave until they start school) can be taken care of.
