Students with Families

Pursuing a university education while coping with familial obligations represents a special challenge. The TUM is committed to supporting its students in managing this balancing act. The goal is to help them complete a course of study while fulfilling their familial obligations, whether raising a child or caring for family members with special needs.

TUM Family Services provides advice and support to employees and students so they can determine the best way to reconcile their studies and familial responsibilities.
