Studying as a parent

Is it possible to study as a parent? Of course it is! But it’s not always easy. We offer support to mothers and fathers in higher education – providing a wide range of special services and concessions.

Day nurseries

We cooperate with a total of four day nurseries in Osnabrück and Vechta operated by other organisations.

Here, students receive a pedagogically qualified care and education offer for their offspring.

Kids' corners and the baby.lounge at the Dining Hall

Osnabrück Student Services knows that nappy-changing facilities and kids’ corners make family lunches at the dining hall a much more relaxed experience, and it has set up all its dining halls accordingly.

Our baby.lounge at the Schlossgarten Dining Hall, heralded a “showpiece project” in the Financial Times, offers a quiet place for breastfeeding.

Under 11 years old?

Enjoy free meals!

Students’ children under the age of 11 are served free meals at dining halls operated by Osnabrück Student Services: a colourful, daily-changing kids’ dish.

Housing for students with children

We provide accommodation suitable for students with children in our housing complexes.

Individuell & vertraulich


Our counselling services cover a wide range of issues faced by parents who study – from information about financing your studies and childcare places to psychological counselling in individual sessions.

Parent/Child Café

Are you keen to share experiences with other parents or just chat for a while? Then why not try out the Parent/Child Café? You’re bound to meet other students there who have a lot in common with you.
