Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Family Support Centre

The Family Friendly University

Welcome to the online platform of the Family Support Centre of Humboldt-Universität Berlin. Here you will find information about all activities of the university to promote a healthy work-life balance.

The Family Support Centre is the central contact point for all issues relating to work-life balance or studies-life balance. We support and advise when you are searching for individual solutions regarding your family, studies and career or if you are caring for relatives. Contact us if you have any questions or need help and information.

HU regards all relationships as family where persons take long-term social responsibility for relatives or partners. All parent-child relationships – including single parents, patchwork families and rainbow families – as well as siblings and matrimonial or similar relationships are included.

On a strategic level, the mission of the Family Support Centre is to make the infrastructure more family-friendly and the university public more aware of the issue of a healthy work-studies-life balance. The Family Support Centre is responsible for coordinating the ‘audit family-friendly university’ certification project.The Family Support Centre maintains a constant dialogue with the Commission for a Family-Friendly University (Kommission familienfreundliche Hochschule), the Central Gender Equality Office (Büro der zentralen Frauenbeauftragten), the staff councils and the Students’ Committee, and is a member of the network "Family in University and Science Berlin" (Netzwerk Familie in Hochschule und Wissenschaft Berlin).
