Familiy Service

Dear students, the team the Family Service of the University of Innsbruck, wish to facilitate the reconciliation of work/study and family and are available to assist you in all matters relating to children, childcare and caring for relatives.

After prior appointment, we advise and inform you about the different forms of childcare, legal matters and financial support for families and caregivers or refer to the appropriate university and non-university institutions. We also provide various childcare services:

Flexible child-care in the SpielRäumen

In the SpielRäumen at the Innrain location, children of students and employees (6 months to 10 years) can be looked after by qualified experts on an hourly basis – e.g. for attending a lecture or seminar.

More information on the procedures, the familiarisation and contact possibilities can be found at:

Holiday care

We organise a week of holiday care during the winter semester break for children of university members between the ages 3-10 years as well as a varied holiday programme during the summer break. This year’s summer programme takes place from 12 July to 10 September 2021. Registration is possible via the website of the Family Service as of 12 April 2021.

Babysitter exchange

The Family Service offers all members of the University of Innsbruck a Babysitter Exchange, which offers parents a fast and uncomplicated means of contact with babysitters. Students can obtain a list with babysitters on request either by mail or they can pick it up at the Family Service.

Support in times of Corona

The Corona crisis is a challenge for studying as well as working parents. To offer additional support in this difficult time, the team of the Family Service has organised an extension of the offered emergency care during the lockdown in the 2020/21 winter semester. In addition, holiday care during the upcoming summer was extended by two weeks and can now be offered during all nine weeks of the summer holidays from 12 July to 10 September 2021.
