The Autonomous Parents' Office invites you to:

The "Family Welcome Day" is an introductory event for students with child(ren) from all departments of the University of Kassel. On this day, we would like to explain and present to you the various offers regarding the compatibility of family and studies. Among other things, we will address counseling services, support measures in the area of studies and the family-supporting infrastructure (parent-child rooms, diaper-changing facilities, cafeteria services, etc.). Representatives of the Studierendenwerk Kassel (childcare and social counseling), the Family Welcome Services of the University of Kassel and also the hosts of the Autonomous Parents' Department of the AStA will be on site and introduce themselves. Of course there will be enough time for your questions! Children can of course be brought along. We are currently checking whether childcare can be offered in the immediate vicinity.

The department introduces itself

Dear students,
Welcome to the Department 06 Architecture - Urban Planning - Landscape Planning (ASL)! Here we teach and research how to design architecture, city and landscape in the world of tomorrow in a sustainable and innovative way - project-oriented and interdisciplinary across the study programs and institutes. Workshops and laboratories are available for practical work. Through international programs and cooperations, we offer opportunities for intercultural exchange. With excursions, practical semesters and in the FUSION lecture series, we focus on professional practice already during the studies and include social challenges in planning and design. Our semester exhibition "Rundgang" is the highlight and conclusion of each semester - students and teachers present their projects and work here. We wish you a good start into a successful study!
