Welcome to all fathers!

We are looking for you..

You are studying, working, researching or teaching at TU Dortmund University and are already, will soon be or would like to become a father?


  • are you looking for contact with other fathers?
  • have concerns and questions about family life?
  • would like to exchange experiences together?
  • are as you are.

We offer you:

  • Regular (online) meetings
  • Non-binding participation
  • Exchange in confidential togetherness (nothing leaves the room)

Our motto: Everything can, nothing must! We are looking forward to new participants and joint networking around being a family man.

For all fathers, whether student*, employee* or professor*, whether with young children, pubescent or adult children - the network is open to all men* with children. It is intended to facilitate a trusting and informal exchange and is entirely geared towards the topics that interest fathers.  

Arne von Irmer is your host and contact person for the network. He has three children between the ages of 11 and 18 and has been employed at TU Dortmund University since 2004.

Arne von Irmer will be happy to answer questions about the content of the network directly by phone: +49231 755 7127.
