Studying as a parent

Raising a child and studying – it works out with just the necessary support. Studierendenwerk Heidelberg offers this support: We have five daycares close to campus in Heidelberg for children starting at six weeks until pre-school age.

Here’s our range of pedagogical support
How to secure a daycare spot

Applying for a daycare place

Our four daycare facilities are located in the immediate vicinity of the science campus and in the Neuenheim district. We offer all-day care (Creches from 07:30 am-17:00 pm and Kindergarden 07:30 am-18.00 pm) We are approx. 10 days closed, this includes Holidays, Bankholidays and Trainingdays for our teachers per annum. Our pedagogical staff create the framework and provide security for the children's individual development. The drop-off and pick-up times can be tailored to your family situation within our opening hours. We have decided on a social price level for children of enrolled students with low income. If you would like to place your child or children in one of our daycare facilities, please register them via the central reservation office of Heidelberg. The city operates this reservation office online.

Right of Use

In principle, every child from Heidelberg can find a place in our daycare centres. However, we give priority to children from Heidelberg who have at least one parent enrolled at one of the universities which we are responsible for, or who are employees of one of the universities for which we are responsible, or who are employees of Heidelberg University Hospital.

In order to be able to check whether you have a priority right of use, we need the following from you:
A current certificate of study if you are a student or proof of employment from the personnel department if you are a university employee or an employee of the University Hospital.


The monthly fees are dependant on your income. They will be determined by the family's yearly gross income and are calculated on a case by case basis. Child-friendly meals are provided free of charge by Studierendenwerk Heidelberg.

400,00 € to 550,00 € for children of enrolled students
