Family Services: reconciliation of work/study and family

Dear students, we, the team of the Family Service of the University of Innsbruck, want to facilitate the reconciliation of work / study and family and are available to assist you in all matters relating to child, 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 appropriate university and non-university institutions. We also provide various childcare services!


Flexible child-care in the SpielRäumen

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

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.

Holiday care

We organise a holiday week during the winter semester holidays (during the school holidays) and a seven-week entertaining holiday programme during the summer break for children of university members aged 3 – 10 years. The next semester holiday week will take place from 10 – 16 February 2020. Applications at the Family Services are possible from early January onwards. More details will be found in time on our website.

Babysitter Exchange

The Family Services offer an internal and free online babysitter exchange. This service 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 Services.

Results of the Survey on Child-Care at the LFU

The evaluation of the needs assessment for child-care carried out by the Family Services from the beginning of May to the end of July 2019 at the University of Innsbruck has now been completed and the results can be viewed on our website now. We would like to thank all 549 students and employees who took part in the survey!
