Back-up Child Care

Back-up Child Care

In co-operation with TU Darmstadt and h_da, the Studierendenwerk funds various projects that aim to facilitate the compatibility of studying and family life. We offer two solutions for emergencies and exceptional circumstances:


Ad-hoc care for children of students

Exceptional circumstances and you are having trouble to find a child care option on short notice?   Student parents can sign up their children between ages 1-12 years for child care at “Fluggis-Abenteuer-Land” on short notice.

The service

Parents who have a student ID can sign up their children for back-up child care when

  • the private primary child care is temporarily unavailable
  • the day care or kindergarten is closed
  • during school vacations
  • parents by way of exception need to study or work extra time beyond the operating hours of regular child care.

Experienced caregivers as well as a team of trainees in the field of day care, students of respective fields of study and carefully selected helpers will take care of children between ages 1-12 years in child friendly facilities (service for younger children is available upon request).

Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 06:00 to 22:00 hrs, including weekdays public holidays, year round.

Appointments to view the facility can be scheduled by phone.

Registration: Booking and Cancellations

Daily hotline from 09:00 – 16:00 hrs: (06151) 780 53 05.

Please note: Registrations are binding

Back-up childcare is free of charge for students of TU and h_da.

In case you are not able to attend a previously scheduled appointment, please make sure to cancel it until 22 hrs the day before. Otherwise your booking causes unnecessary costs for which a cancellation fee will be charged. Thank you for your understanding.

Child care by the hour

for toddlers from TU students in the family rooms:

TU Darmstadt and the Studierendenwerk help students in acute need of child care. Upon prior agreement, children from ages 6 months to 8 years can be cared for by experienced caregivers in the family rooms in the city center, Lichtwiese and Botanischer Garten (botanical garden) on a flexible hourly basis.

Child care is free of charge for students.

The caregivers have to make time for you and your child. Please register your demand for childcare as early as possible, preferably no less than 48 hours in advance.

Registration is binding. Therefore, in the event of a cancellation on very short notice a cancellation fee will be charged.

Registration: directly via TU Darmstadt (see contacts)
