The kihz Foundation offers a range of childcare options which cover some of the holiday periods. It is worth taking advice.
Childcare that you need at short notice, for unexpected childcare problems, can be arranged via the kihz Foundation’s kihz Flex service. For more information go to kihz Flex.
For internal events at UZH, the kihz Foundation offers an option for booking on-site childcare via its kihz Mobil service.
Doctoral students whose participation in a congress would be endangered due to a lack of childcare can apply to the Graduate School for a contribution to the costs incurred for on-site childcare up to a maximum of 300 CHF per year. For further information, visit Financial support for childcare Graduate School
