Child­care at the Uni­ver­sity of Pader­born

The University of Paderborn provides a variety of childcare options for parents who work or study at the university in order to support them in combining family responsibilities and studies. The links below offer more information about individual possibilities.

Children between the ages of one and twelve years old with a parent or guardian at the university can be looked after in short-term childcare by qualified childcare specialists, free of charge.

Additional information about short-term childcare PUKi can be found in the brochure “Paderborner Uni Kids” in German here.

Since 1999, summer and holiday camps have been offered directly on campus for children with a parent/guardian at the university. The camps are designed so that they can not only solve parental difficulties for employees and students, but also such that they can offer children a glimpse and encourage their curiosity about and enjoyment of engineering and the hard sciences at an early age.

Additional information about summer and holiday camps can be found here.


The Day Care Center MS-Kunigunde, run by the Student Affairs Office (Studentenwerk) Paderborn, has offered childcare places since 10 Jan 1994 for children of Paderborn students from four months old to six years old.

Additional information about the MS-Kunigunde can be found here.

The Equal Opportunities Officer and the Family Services Office are happy to support you in your search to find suitable childcare options for your child or children.
