If you want to bring your family to your stay at the TU Ilmenau or if you want to catch up with them, childcare for the small children and schooling for the older children is the most important thing, so that on the one hand they are looked after and enjoy education and on the other hand you can concentrate on your research.

On the pages of this section we will give you an overview of childcare options and schools for your children. In any case, it is necessary to take care of child care and / or enrollment in schools very early. In the best case you take care of it already 12 months in advance. If you wish, we can help you with the communication to the appropriate contact persons.

Childcare places are in great demand - so make sure you contact the facilities in good time! Parents-to-be should also register for a place before the birth if they need childcare.
