Admission Criteria

Following criteria must be fulfilled:

  • When the child starts going to the childcare facility, employment at the LMU must last for at least another six months.
  • Should the employment end while a child is still attending the facility, it can only remain there until the end of that year's term.

You can apply for one of the following facilities

Application Procedure

  • You can only apply after your child has been born.
  • Children can start at the childcare centre from 0 years.
  • You can register your child for 5-days-a-week childcare using this application form! Daily booking times can be decided on when signing the contract.
    For more information about flexible childcare by the hour at the Campuskinder Crèche, see below.
  • Please send the application form including all required documents (proof of employment at the LMU, birth certificate, document regarding prospective employment, if applicable) to the following address:

  • After we have received and checked your application, you will receive an email confirming your application.
  • Once a year (in December), you will be required to confirm that you are still interested in a place. We therefore ask you to keep your contact details up to date!  Every year in December, the Munich Student Union will ask for confirmation by sending an automatically generated email to all the email addresses provided by the parents in the application forms. Due to the large mailing list, it is possible that, depending on your mail software, the email might end up in your spam folder. Should you not receive a confirmation request via email in the course of December, please contact the Munich Student Union, department Studying with a Child, immediately. Should we not receive a confirmation within the time period specified in the email, your child will be removed from the waiting list.

Allocation of Places

Places are allocated by the management of the childcare facility according to the place on the waiting list in following priority groups, agreed upon in cooperation with the LMU:

Group 1: Children whose parents are both employed at the LMU according to the admission criteria and children of single parents. (We can only treat you as a single parent if you hand in what is called a “negative confirmation” issued by the Jugendamt.)

Group 2: Children with one parent employed at the LMU according to the admission criteria and the second parent employed elsewhere.

Group 3: Children whose parents fulfil the admission criteria but do not classify for groups 1 or 2.

Within one priority group, following children will be given priority:

  • children whose siblings go to the same facility and will stay there for at least 3 more months after the child starts going to the childcare centre.
  • cases where the LMU has significant official interest in gaining at least one parent as a new employee (confirmed by the dean or responsible department).

If two applicants are in the same priority group, the application date will determine who gets the place.

The following aspects are also taken into account for the allocation of places:

  • For educational reasons, the final decision as to who will be accepted is made by the management of the childcare facility. In order to put together groups that are educationally suitable, the decision is based on the following criteria:
    1. gender of the child
    2. age of the child
    3. other educational reasons
