The university offers its employees a total of 113 day-care spots at the four university daycare centres:



The university daycare centres are situated at various campus locations to enable childcare that is close to the workplace. They are run by Familienservice gGmbH, a subsidiary of the university.

Further daycare centres for employees and students at the university

Apart from the four university daycare centres the university offers its employees and students a further 20 childcare spots at the daycare centre Kita Wolkengarten and 10 spots at the daycare centre Kita Shalom, which are allocated to the university within the context of a cooperation.

Childcare places at the Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine offers 15 childcare spots through cooperation with various Freiburg day-care centres for children under the age of three. The offer is directed at scientists who are engaged in research. You will find more information on the webpage of the faculty’s equal opportunities representative.

The Office for children, youth and families of the Freiburg city administration (Amt für Kinder, Jugend und Familie, or AKi for short) runs a website where parents can obtain information relating to the search for day-care centres in Freiburg.

Registering your Child for a Kita spot


In order to enroll your child in any Kita in Freiburg you need to follow the central registration procedure by the city of Freiburg. This applies also to the Kitas of the university.

On the following website run by the Office for children, young people and families of the Freiburg city administration (Amt für Kinder, Jugend und Familie, or AKi for short) you will be guided through the registration procedure (German only).

On this website, you can also access the registration form (German only) on which you can specify up to three Kitas. If you enter one or several of the Uni-Kitas as your desired institutions, please identify your relationship to the Universität Freiburg. By sending the form, it will be submitted automatically to the directors of the Kitas you have chosen.

The websites of the city of Freiburg as well as the form for the central registration are in German only. If this is inconvenient for you, we offer you the registration form in English.

The directors of the Uni-Kitas will then send you an email as well as a form on your employment status with the Universität Freiburg.

Please note that most of the free spots are allocated at the beginning of a new kindergarten year in September. In order to get a spot at this point, you need to be registered in the central registration system of the city of Freiburg by the end of February of the same year. If you need to start childcare at a time other than September, you also have to register with the central system and you should do so as soon as possible. In this case please be prepared for a longer waiting period, since there are only a few spots left to be awarded after September.

If you require personal support during your search for childcare you can turn to the Informations-, Beratungs- und Vormerkstelle (IBV) Kinderbetreuung, an office set up by the city administration specifically to help parents with their daycare needs:
