News from the Family Services

The Family Service is a service institution at the University of Innsbruck and a point of contact for all members of the university with children. The children’s office advices you on all matters concerning children and child-care, informs on legal matters and aids and provides flexible child-care offers.

Child-care facility offering flexible child-care by the hour

Within the scope of a Bachelor’s Thesis the children of the SpielRäume have got a new home. At the start of October they moved into the new Family Service building. Parents were taken into consideration as well. The new rooms offer a place for learning and working, for information exchange and advising.

In the SpielRäumen facility children of students and employees at the University of Innsbruck from 6 months right up to the completion of their 10th year, can be looked after by qualified experts on an hourly basis. This  is an ideal possibility to have children looked after by educationally trained personnel while attending  lectures or seminars.

Annually at the start of the semester  - on the Open Day - interested parents have the opportunity to learn all about  the offers of the flexible care institution, visit the rooms and get to know the personnel. Moreover, you can register your child(ren) for the SpielRäume on these days and arrange dates for the free familiarisation week.

For the 2018 summer semester the Open Day takes place on 26 February 2018, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon and from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Note: Information talks and familiarisations can be arranged any time, also during the semester.

In case of questions please mail to or call +43 512 507-35252.        

Online-Babysitter Exchange

The Children’s Office offers an internal and free online babysitter exchange. Students can obtain a list with babysitters on request either by mail or they can pick it up at the Family Service.

This service enables parents a fast and uncomplicated means of contact with babysitters and also creates the opportunity to overcome a shortage of carers in the short-term.
