The planning of a holiday programme for 2022 has not yet been completed. You can find out more on this page in January (17 th).

‘First come, first served.’  Registrations are generally considered in the order they came in.

Exemptions from this rule for the science camps:

Places are allocated not exclusively in temporal order of registration (‘first come, first served’), with set quota for the University and the Medical Faculty/University Hospital. Another deciding factor is the child’s application (self-made application in form of a drawing, a hand-written text or a piece of craft work). You receive a confirmation of receipt upon registration. After the Centre for General Scientific Education (ZAWiW, Zentrum für Allgemeine Wissenschaftliche Weiterbildung) reviewed the application, we will inform you via email during the 5th week after registration opening if your child can participate in the holiday programme or is placed on the waitlist due to high demand or a missing application.

Subsidised holiday programme

Tax and social insurances
To support the reconciliation of career and family, Ulm University, Ulm University Hospital and Ulm University of Applied Sciences offer a holiday programme for children during several weeks of the year and cover part of the costs.

This subsidy has already been deducted from the fees listed on these pages.

Employer contributions to employees for holiday childcare of school-aged children are considered non-monetary benefits and thus subject to social insurance and income tax.

Tax liability
The subsidised amount increases your gross income for tax purposes and is included in its entirety in the tax assessment according to your individual tax rate, once the monthly tax exemption limit (currently € 44) is exceeded. 

Social insurance obligation
Your gross income for social insurance purposes is increased by the subsidised amount. Both the employer’s and employee’s contribution are calculated on this basis. 

Last update: October 2016


We sometimes have children on a waitlist – should your child not be able to participate after all, we would appreciate it if you could notify us as soon as possible so that we can offer the spot to another child.

If you deregister your child after you have paid, an administrative fee of € 25 will be retained.

If you deregister your child within 4 weeks before the beginning of the event, until Thursday before the event at the latest (Thu before 11:30 a.m.), a cancellation fee of 50% will be retained.

Later refunds cannot be granted. Exception: If your child cannot participate in the holiday programme due to illness, you can present Sarah Pfeffer sarah.pfeffer(at) oder Fax an +49 731 50-26609 a doctor’s certificate until 2 days before the beginning of the event to receive a refund less the administrative fee of € 25.

Sollte ein Ferienprogramm pandemiebedingt komplett (ohne alternatives Online-Format) abgesagt werden, erhalten Sie den bezahlten Teilnahmebeitrag zurück. Beim eventuellen Angebot eines webbasierten Alternativprogramms - auch gegebenenfalls zeitreduziert - wird eine Teilrückerstattung erfolgen, sofern es bei der Umorganisation (von Präsenz- auf Online-Format) eine Kostenreduktion von mindestens 20 € je Kind geben sollte.


If you want to deregister your child from the Ruhetal holiday programme, please do so in writing directly to Ruhetal. Please send an email to info(at) and cc to maria.stoeckle(at) . The modalities are explained in detail in the therms and conditions of the summer camp facility Ruhetal Ulm.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass der Universität auch bei einer Abmeldung Kosten für jeden ursprünglich gebuchten Platz entstehen.

Sofern Sie Ihr Kind noch nicht beim Ruhetal online angemeldet haben, informieren Sie lediglich Frau Stöckle maria.stoeckle(at)
