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.
