Family Service

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.

Since October 2017 the Family Service has been located in the bird-nest-like wooden building at the Innrain 52b, right between the main university building and the Inn river. The spacious new rooms offer plenty of space for playing, learning and working, for information exchange and advising.

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

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 provided by 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.

The next Open Day will take place on 21 September 2018.

Note: We also offer child-care for children to 10 years on days without school.

This summer again, our holiday child-care programme is very popular and we look forward to a varied and exciting time with your children!

Online-Babysitter Exchange

The Family Service 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 offers 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.
