Family and Social Affairs
It is not always easy to balance studying or working with recreation, family and friends. The HNU has taken several measures to assist students und members of the staff here and was awarded the certificate „family-friendly university“ for doing so.
Milestones were setting up a day-care centre for the university as well as initiating the Centre for Consultation and information for parents, personal and welfare issues (BIZEPS).
Familyconcept of the HNU
The family is the social network around everybody- normally it means to take responsibility for someone else. The definition and the meaning of "family" is individual and gets defined by every member of the HNU him- and herself. Examples for family tasks and challenges can be childminding or to take care of a familymember. Further there can be a personal focus on how to lead a healthy and balanced life or how to keep the balance between university-engagement and private life beyond academically jobs.
