A service for all members of the TUM family

Welcome to the TUM.Family – Kids, Family and Elder Care Center!

We provide all the information, advice and services you need to successfully combine your career or study at TUM with your home and family life. At each of our three campuses, you will find support to help you find suitable childcare – from nurseries through afterschool care to last-minute babysitters. This center also runs a school holiday program (Bewegte TUM-Ferien) for your children and can even help you make arrangements for family members in need of care.

Feel free to contact us!
