These are the facilities that will be reopened:

The Mensas will usually open from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m., the Cafeterias will be open from 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. You can find further information on the pages of the respective facilities.


The already known hygiene measures and safety regulations also apply in our facilities. We would like to ask you to act in solidarity and follow these rules in order to protect yourself, other guests and our employees. Otherwise, we are facing closures of our facilities.

  • Please expect for your visit to take a little more time than usually, as we only allow a certain number of guests to enter the facility at once and the waiting time may be longer due to the distance rules.  

The Mensas and Cafeterias have been rearranged in such a way that the safety distance of 2 meters is maintained between all tables. Often you will only be able to sit alone at a table or in pairs at most.

Show details
  • Please use only the designated seats and leave all tables and chairs in their places!
  • Please only stay in the Mensa/Cafeteria as long as necessary for eating - and please avoid working in our facilities.
  • Please avoid going to the Mensa/Cafeteria in groups - no matter if you are a family or share a flat. Firstly, we currently have fewer seats than usually, and secondly, the distance rule could then no longer be respected.
  • For Mensas with an open outdoor area: Please make sure that the necessary distance of 2 meters is kept here as well.

We hope for your understanding for the fact that we start with a reduced offer. Every day we offer a variety of dishes, including, a vegan or vegetarian dish; additionally we offer fresh salads (prepared in bowls) as well as desserts, smoothies and a small selection of cakes. For information on the respective offers and opening hours of the individual Mensas and Cafeterias, please consult the website of the respective institution from 25 May onward.

Please note the local regulations regarding the access of guests. Counters for food distribution and cash desks have been adjusted to the situation. Cutlery and trays are handed out together with the food. Please stay in the serving area only as long as necessary and decide on a meal as quickly as possible. The floor markings remind you to keep the distance in the meantime.

Show details
  • The warm self-checkout counters have been converted to a service concept or remain closed.
  • If smoothies, desserts and cakes are offered for self-checkout, the rule is: First make your choice only then take it out!
  • Unpacked rolls will be offered packaged again for the time being.
  • There are no salt and pepper shakers on the tables.
  • There are no play corners and high chairs available for the children.

Please be aware that you can only pay with your (MENSA-)CARD (student card etc.) in all Mensas/Cafeterias - cash payment is currently NOT possible! Exceptions will not be made. Please make sure that you have enough credit on your card and if necessary recharge your credit in advance at the loading terminals!

The operation of the Mensas and Cafeterias is subject to strict hygienic regulations, not only during Corona times. We do our very best at the moment to ensure that the hygienic standards exceed the normal level.

Show details
  • Before our facilities are reopened, the entire staff is again trained in hygiene and instructed on the measures addressing the current situation.
  • Tables and seats as well as surfaces exposed to frequent contact are regularly disinfected.
  • Our employees will disinfect their hands in regular intervals and maintain the necessary distance or wear a mouth-nose cover.
