Studying as a parent

In Germany over 6% of university students are parents, which means there are (on average) nearly 700 parents studying at the University of Rostock. Coordinating both — university and family — is not always easy. This is the why we have the department “Studies & Family,” which is represented by Linda. She herself is a mother, which makes it easier for her to understand your struggles. Her position is all about networking, advice and lobby work at the university. If you have any questions, ideas, criticism or you just want to connect with others, please send an email:

We offer many events for studying parents and their children throughout the year. The next events can be viewed in our calendar or on the Facebook/Instagram pages of the AStA.
