„Between Diapers und Science“

An offer for studying parents

Due to the pandemic, the Krabbelburg is currently closed.

The Krabbelburg is located in building R13 V00 on the Essen campus and is furnished with a baby’s changing table, children’s toys, a kitchen (including electrical appliances plus a washing machine and a dryer). There are also cots for short naps and a small garden with a sandbox for sunny days. The Krabbelburg can be used at any time, even outside of childcare, to breastfeed and change the children, to relax or simply as a place to stay.

Are you looking for contact to other student parents, to exchange experiences or do you have questions about financial and/or social conditions as well as about studying with a child? Then get in touch by e-mail or come by during our office hours. You can also contact the Social Policy Department for Childcare at: krabbelburg(at)
