Family Friendliness, Studying as a Parent

The St. Pölten UAS seeks to support staff members with caring responsibilities and to create the best possible conditions for studying with children or while pregnant.

Under certain circumstances, students may file an application for a tuition fee waiver / the return of tuition fees and participation fees. A pregnancy is one of these circumstances. You can file this application by submitting the form and the necessary supporting documents to the CSC.

Parent-Child Room & Family-Friendly Facilities

Parent-Child Room

There is a Parent-Child Room in building A. Download Navigation Guide (PDF).

The Parent-Child Room is open to students and staff members of the UAS who have childcare responsibilities and, if needed, external fathers and other caregivers. The access card to the Parent-Child Room can be collected from the Campus and Study Center or the library.
