Kinder Betreuung
Gadrobe der Kitag
  • “Balancing your responsibilities” is the theme of the workshops for student parents offered at Oase in the vicinity of the campus. Here, student parents have the chance to share their experiences, put their situation into perspective, and in the process discover how to best pursue their goals. It is possible to register for childcare services for the duration of the workshop.

To the workshop

  • Student parents have the option to buy a kids’ menu (“Kinderteller”) for their children at a price of 1.50 euros at the RUB Mensa. Highchairs for children are also available.

  • Holiday childcare: ProKids, the RUB holiday childcare service, organises an exciting holiday programme for the children of students and staff, running for three weeks during the summer holidays and one week each during the Easter and autumn holidays.

  • The university gym Unifit is located across from the Bochum train station and offers childcare services in its well-equipped Kidsarea twice a week: the children can play while the parents are working out.


  • Spielraum is an association that awards grants to student parents at RUB.


  • The “campus map for families” shows the RUB’s family-friendly infrastructure with nursing and changing facilities across the campus, as well as pram-accessible routes around the campus. In addition, the RUB mobility pages provide a number of other maps, for example for cyclists.
