Central Administration

All administrative employees have the opportunity to borrow the KidsBox free of charge. The KidsBox is currently located in Department 3.2 (Human Resources), Wilhelm-Dilthey-Straße 1, South Campus.

The loan can be used free of charge by all members of the TU administration after prior reservation. To do so, send an E-Mail as early as possible (two weeks in advance) and let us know when and where you need the KidsBox and for how long. This long advance notice is necessary because the transport of the KidsBox has to be organized.

Important: for organizational reasons, the delivery and removal cannot take place on a Wednesday.

The KidsBox location must be accessible without barriers, as the KidsBox is very heavy and can only be transported on wheels. The KidsBox can only be brought into buildings where TU employees work.

The transport of the KidsBox to the agreed place of use and back is organized by the Staff Office Equal Opportunities Family and Diversity together with the Department 6.1 of the TU Dortmund University.

Before the KidsBox is transported away again, it should be clean, assembled and closed. Please check the contents for completeness (list is in the KidsBox). If anything is missing, please give an E-Mail feedback.

Please urgently observe our terms of use. By using the KidsBox you accept the terms of use.

What do I have to pay attention to?

The use of KidsBox is at your own risk. Unsupervised use of KidsBox is not permitted.

Users are responsible for the careful handling of KidsBox and its contents.

For hygienic reasons, pillows, blankets or fitted sheets (for the mattress and travel cot) as well as diapers, wet baby wipes, etc. are not included. Used consumables (diapers, etc.) must be disposed of independently.

The play materials in the drawers of the KidsBox are an employment offer. The use of KidsBox does not mean that the room in question is child-friendly or childproof, or that the toys in KidsBox are actually suitable for the child in question. Therefore, taking into account your child's stage of development, please check in particular whether the toys are suitable for your child and pay attention to possible sources of danger in your office (cables, drawers, sockets, etc).

When may the Kidsbox not be used?
