Family-Friendly University


TU Berlin is a family-friendly university and is continually working to create a more family-friendly environment for work and study. Family-friendliness is relevant to all status groups at TU Berlin: national and international students, scholarship holders, technical and administrative employees and research, management and teaching staff. As a cross-cutting issue, family-friendliness is firmly integrated into the university's processes and structures. In 2008, TU Berlin was awarded the berufundfamilie Service GmbH quality seal and has been a certified family-friendly university ever since.

Why is it important to be family-friendly?

  • It makes TU a more attractive employer for men and women
  • It gives us a competitive advantage as a technical university on the recruitment market and in the attainment of third-party funding
  • It boosts the job satisfaction and motivation of our staff
  • It helps promote a new working culture
  • It increases our competitiveness nationally and internationally
  • Family-friendliness = healthy environment for work and study = continued capacity to work
  • It enhances our image

What we mean by family!

At TU Berlin, we use the word family to describe any situation where someone is responsible for others, particularly a partner, a child or other people in need of care.

We try to create an environment that supports all forms of families and where special arrangements can be made and challenges met.
