Social Counselling Service

Studying with child(ren)

  • Until presumably 14 February 2021, only emergency childcarecare can be provided in valid cases of need. In accordance with the Saxonian Corona Protection Ordinance of 26 January 2021, students with children can make use of emergency care for their children under certain conditions. More specifically, it must be verified that childcare at home is not possible due to exam preparation or an exam being taken and that care cannot be provided by the other person(s) entitled to care for the child (see § 5a, paragraph 4, number 4). Students who meet these criteria can apply to the study/examination office of their university using this form for proving their need. If you have any further questions, our Social Counselling Service is happy to help.


  • Starting from 1 March 2021 applications for childcare by the hour in the Kinderladen will be possible for the summer semester 2021. Please note: Due to the corona pandemic, we are not yet able to make any reliable statements about the care times and the group structure we can offer. We will wait for further information on regulations and closely monitor the course of infections to then decide accordingly. Further information can be found on the website of Kinderladen.
