The Campus Family Office

Together with the Campus Family office, the Technical University of Ilmenau and Studentenwerk Thuringia want to improve conditions for the compatibility of studies/work and family life. In order to achieve that, a family-friendly environment for both studying and working is created for university employees.

Contrary to popular belief amongst the public that studies provide enough space and room to grow for children and family, students and doctoral candidates are actually under great pressure and suffer from high stress levels. The Campus Family office has set a goal to make TU Ilmenau a more family-friendly university, where studying as parents can easily be done. The office represents a focal point for students and university employees.

The service facility includes flexible daycare, courses and group programs about pregnancy and childbirth, as well as for students and staff with children. In addition, useful information to the general social counselling from Studentenwerk Thuringia will also be provided. The Campus Family office thus forms the centrepiece of the campus family and is responsible for coordinating various service programs.
