TUM Equal Opportunity
We are particularly driven by the ethical dimension of the topic equal opportunity that is based on human dignity and mutual respect. Only by this dimension we are called upon to take responsibility, to embrace change and by that contribute to an open culture.
At the Technical University of Munich this topic is seen as a cross-sectional task. The Gender & Diversity Strategy at TUM is strongly supported by the divisions of TUM Equal Opportunity.
The primary task of the Gender Equality Office is to enforce real equality of women and men at the TUM (students and academic staff).
TUM Familyservice provides all the information, advice and services you need to successfully combine your career or study at TUM with your home and family life. We support you at each of the three TUM campuses.
The staff of equal opportunity advises and supports members of the university, faculties and (scientific) institutions of the TUM in planning and implementing diversity measures.
The Accommodation Service offers international postdocs and guest professors support in finding suitable housing in Munich and Garching.

The TUM was the first German university to sign the Charta of Diversity on March 21, 2007. The initiative “Diversity as Chance – Corporate Charter of Diversity in Germany” is a fundamental declaration of fairness and appreciation for people in corporations and is under the patronage of Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel. In signing the Charter, companies obligate themselves to create a work environment free from prejudice and discrimination. The charter is designed to promote an open company culture based on mutual esteem and respect.
