The platform Eltern im Netz (Parents on the Web) offers answers to a range of questions pertaining to pregnancy and parenting.

You’ll find advice in the Munich Student Union’s Wegweiser für Studierende mit Kind [Link funktionierte nicht am 28.20./ll](information for students with children). 


We recommend that you apply to your closest municipal nurseries as early as possible – you can always turn down a place, if you’re offered one. Qualified parents can sign up for a place in the HFF nursery after their child’s birth – either centrally through the Studentenwerk (Student Union), or personally via email to the HFF women's representative.

Allocation of daycare places:

Children can only be registered (for student daycare) after their birth and must have reached the age of twelve months to be admitted to a nursery.

It is important that you apply for a daycare spot immediately, after the birth of your child. By registering online through the Studentenwerk (Student Union), you are automatically considered for all other student nurseries, as well, in case no slot is available in the HFF nursery.

You are also welcome to direct a request, even prior to your child’s birth, to the women's representative. Though the order of application has no influence on the allocation of slots, the women's representative can call a particular request to the attention of the Studentenwerk (Student Union). We recommend that parents contact the head of the nursery, Sonja Strassl, to arrange an appointment for advance viewing and an interview:
