Family Service

"This is the dawning of a new era – the time of family-friendliness. More and more companies and universities recognize that a family-friendly personnel policy is a success factor for growth and competitiveness."(Ursula von der Leyen, former German Family Minister)

Accommodating family together with work or study under one roof is not easy and it is often an act of delicate balances.

Therefore, the Technical University (TU) Clausthal aims as a principle to be a family-friendly university. On 19 June 2007, the TUC was awarded in Berlin the "Family Friendly University" Elementary Certificate. In a multi-year process, which is also known as auditing, the University intends to implement measures agreed upon and thus prove its family-oriented approach.

After a successful session of Re-Auditing, in May 2010, the TU Clausthal was awarded the certificate of "Family Friendly University" for a period of further three years.

The Service Center for the Family is the first point of contact for students and employees with a family. Since 2012, it has been located in the Equal Opportunity Office. The Service Center provides information and advice and, if required, forwards the request to other services.
