The Backup-Service at Heidelberg University


The university’s Backup-Service provides flexible emergency care in urgent and unforeseeable situations, e.g. unavailability of regular care or absence of the parents for professional reasons.

It’s possible to choose between half a day (at least 3 hours) and all day care.

Children up to six years can be admitted to the KidsClub (INF 370). The places at the Backup-Service are electronically assigned, so that you can get a booking-confirmation on short notice (provided that a free place is available).


  • 5 Euro (child/hour) for employees of the university
  • 8 Euro (child/hour) for others
