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.
