Information about our services

Mensas & Cafeterias

We operate eight Mensas and seven Cafeterias at various university locations throughout Leipzig. With the start of the summer semester, our Mensas and Cafeterias will reopen at their regular times..

Important Note: Disposable cups will finally disappear from our Cafeterias with the start of the summer semester 2024. However, you have the option to enjoy your drinks (and food) on-site or take them with you in free, environmentally friendly reusable containers.

Payment is only possible with a valid student or staff ID card or the Mensa card. TIP: It’s best to sign up for AutoLoad! Cash payment is not possible.

You can find the exact opening hours of each cafeteria and café on the respective facility’s page.
