Information on financing studies with a child

The special situation of students with children is also taken into account in BAföG. The additional financial expense incurred by students with child(ren) (e.g. due to the use of the various forms of childcare) is counteracted, among other things, by the childcare supplement within the framework of educational support under BAföG.

During your studies, children affect your BAföG benefits in various ways, including extending the maximum funding period or increasing your tax allowance. The BAföG office on campus will be happy to advise you on this.

For information on maternity, child, and parental benefits, as well as the Thuringian child-raising allowance, housing allowance, or the claiming of social benefits, please refer to the brochure "Studying and having a child under one roof" or contact the Family and Equal Opportunity Officer.

Children's menu for the canteen

The dining halls of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen offer a free lunch for campus dwarfs as soon as a meal is paid for at the normal student or employee price. To do this, you must apply for a free child ID card for the refectory at the BAföG office at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences, presenting your student ID and your child's birth certificate.

The Mensa also offers children's chairs for free use in the Mensa for your offspring.

For meals for the very young, the quiet room on the first floor of House 20 is available for breastfeeding. You can ask for the key for this room in the SSZ. It is advantageous to present your FamilyCard for this purpose.
