The Student Family Center “StuFaz” is a meeting and networking place, a place to go to and a place for counselling and events for (future) students parents who are enrolled at one of the 8 universities/academies in Leipzig. Our Social Counselling Service offers various information events, workshops and counselling for student parents whose children are not yet in childcare. Additionally, in StuFaz, student parents have a place to play, relax, meet and study. Student parents are welcome to bring their children along. However, we do not offer childcare – but all events are made for taking your children with you.

The latest information and opening hours will be announced on this webpage or in Studentenwerk Leipzig's Facebook group "Studium mit Kind Leipzig".
