Portable Toy Boxes

In order to make waiting periods for children more enjoyable, e.g. if their parents have to attend administrative meetings, or if children have to be taken to work for short periods of time, they can have fun with the portable toy boxes, which are situated at different locations in the University. They can easily be rolled from one office to the next.

The boxes have been made available in part by donations from University employees. At the moment, you can find portable toy boxes for children in the Waiting Room for the Students' Registration Office and the Central Examination Office, in the International Office, in the Examination Office, in the Planning and Facility Management Division, in the Institute of Physics, in the Institute of Mathematics, in the offices of the Family Service, in the Office of the Rectorate and in the Department of Art. The locations have also been marked on the map ‘Familienfreundliche Hochschule’. 

If further facilities would like a toy box or other University members would like to make donations, please feel free to contact the Family Service.



If you have to take your child to work for a short while, you can borrow both a portable toy box and also a large KidsBox from the University’s Family Service.

This can be rolled to your workplace and transforms it into a parent-child room in no time at all. The Box contains lots of toys for children up to primary school age, diverse hygiene articles and offers sleeping and baby-changing facilities.
You are also welcome to use the KidsBox for conferences.
