Child care

Osnabrück Student Services (Studentenwerk Osnabrück) runs three daycare centers in Osnabrück and Vechta. The children of students and employees of Osnabrück and Vechta Universities are given priority in the selection process for places at these centers.


Pregnancy constitutes a new beginning and involves numerous challenges posed by the changing situation. Especially during their studies are prospective mothers and fathers confronted with many questions: Is it possible to successfully complete my studies? Are there special regulations for exams? How can studying and a child be financed? The family service (UniBambinOS) supports and advises prospective parents in all matters relating to studying and child in individual and confidential conversations. Please feel free to contact us!

Prenatal advice and consultancy are also provided by:

Sozialdienst katholischer Frauen e.V.
Donum vitae e.V.
Pro familia Beratung

Furthermore the university provides consultation if your baby cries a lot, you and/or your baby have problems falling asleep or if your baby refuses to eat/drink. If you need help concerning these or similar problems you can contact Dr. rer. nat. Ariane Gernhardt via mail:


The City of Osnabrück offers a wide range of childcare facilities. Information about these daycare centers and nurseries can be found at City of Osnabrück , listed by district.
