Kids in Jena

Jena´s university and the town itself provide a hospitable environment for students and researchers with children. Young families are very welcome. Various child care facilities are available at the university and at the non-university research institutions in Jena. Friedrich Schiller University is one of eight universities that were given "family-friendly university" awards in a nationwide competition in February 2008.

Here you can find a new web portal for families provided by Friedrich Schiller University (FSU): Familienservice (as yet only in German)

Specific information for PhD students with children in Jena is provided by the Jena Graduate Academy (JGA).
