We offer confidential counselling for personal matters concerning the compatibility of family with work or studies for all members of Kiel University. Because of the Coronavirus we do not offer personal counselling at the moment. However counselling is possible via phone, email or videochat.


Kiel University is committed to family-friendly policies and infrastructures.The Family Service counsels, supports and coordinates current projects and devises new concepts for family-friendly conditions at the University.
It is meant to be a first contact point for all members of Kiel University that have questions according to the compatibility of family, work and studies. That includes child care, family-friendly teaching and infrastructure.

Kiel University supports parents and their right to share family duties with each other. It is the matter of all members of Kiel University that tolerance and understanding towards people with family duties becomes a matter of course and accepted practice on campus.
