Studentenwerk Leipzig is supporting students with child(ren) by means of a so-called Kinderkarte (childrens’s student restaurant card). Until they reach the age 10, this card entitles children of students of any one of Leipzig’s nine universities and academies to receive one free warm meal per day and child at the Studentenwerk Leipzig student restaurants.

As a prerequisite for using the children’s student restaurant card, simultaneously at least two side dishes, one meal or a salad dish have to be purchased for one of the parents. When paying, the children’s student restaurant card has to be placed at the cashier’s desk in a clearly visible manner.

The cards are always valid for one semester at a time and may then be renewed. They can be applied for, collected, renewed, returned and reported lost either directly by calling on the Studentenwerk Leipzig social counsellors or by writing an E-mail to: engelhardt {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de  or winkler {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de

Studentenwerk Leipzig provides special children’s plates (Kinderteller) for children’s meals at all its student restaurants. They are available to you directly at the counter or from the student restaurant staff. Please solely use these plates with the coloured motifs for any student restaurant food you buy for your child(ren).

Salads, desserts and the range of foods offered at the cafeterias are not considered to be part of this service. At the student restaurant Mensa am Park, only the food offered at the sales stalls on the lower level are relevant in this regard.

We consider sustainability to be a complex synergy of social, ecological, ethical, but also economic factors. For further information on this matter, please refer to our page on "Sustainability".

All our student restaurants prepare fresh meals on a daily basis. Warm lunch meals offered at our smaller facilities (cafeterias) are supplied by the student restaurant Mensa am Elsterbecken, whereas more delicate food, such as vegetable side dishes, is prepared on site, as far as possible, because the quality of our food is very important to us. Snacks such as rolls or soups, salads and desserts as well as smoothies continue to be prepared freshly on site for each of our facilities.

Veggie days are offered by Studentenwerk Leipzig due to an initiative started by students of Leipzig’s universities and academies. They are explicitly not aimed at inducing anyone to become a vegetarian. However, refraining from eating meat every once in a while does have a positive effect on your health, just to name one reason for offering vegetarian food. By means of this initiative we would like to encourage you to try vegetarian dishes and show you that vegetarian food is tasty and nourishing.

By offering one vegetarian dish per day (in addition to the alternatives containing meat), we would like to ensure that we can cater to the needs of all our customers – vegetarians as well as customers who do eat meat. Our vegetarian guests normally have less selection when it comes to the dishes offered. Moreover, our veggie days only take place at one student restaurant and not at all student restaurants at the same time, thus giving you the opportunity to fall back on another Studentenwerk student restaurant close by.

Our vegan premium dish (Veganes Premiumgericht) is prepared using products with a low rate of convenience (level of pre-preparation). This means higher manpower requirements when preparing the food and thus overall higher costs for each dish, as our employees mostly need a lot more time for preparing that dish than they need for conventional dishes. In addition to that, ingredients such as nuts, soy or seitan products in particular, are often more expensive. This dish is also deliberately made to be more elaborate as it‘s meant to not only appeal to vegan customers but also to those who have high demands in terms of the refinement of a dish.

In addition to the vegan premium dish, we also offer many other vegan foods, both at our student restaurants as well as at our cafeterias. For more information, please refer to our Offers.

First of all, there are almost no leftovers at our student restaurants due to the food being prepared in batches. If, however, there happen to be some helpings left, we use the opportunity to conserve such surplus of food for further processing by means of flash-freezing. Unpacked goods that have already been offered for sale (in window display and/or in our showcases and on our counters) or that have exceeded certain times of exposure must be discarded for hygienic reasons and may not be put in circulation anymore. Therefore it is also not possible to pass this (low quantity of) food on to third parties.

Show details

We would like to refrain from using single-use tableware for ecological reasons, among other things. From a hygienic point of view, taking away food that can no longer be kept cool or warm is also problematic. However, you are welcome to enquire for smaller portions at the counter. We would like to point out, that in that case we cannot charge lower prices.

In order for our executive chefs to be able to plan accordingly and to avoid subjective assessments we usually offer just one portion size. However, in individual cases, you are welcome to get a smaller portion at the counter in order to avoid leftover food. However, we would like to point out, that in that case we cannot charge lower prices.

The food’s nutritional values are subject to natural variations and also depend on the quantity served. Therefore, any calculated energy values would only be rough estimates. If an exact value were to be indicated, we would no longer be able to attend to our customer’s individual wishes. For instance, it would no longer be possible to swap or omit any components. We are also in favour of allowing our chefs the freedom to make minor changes despite fixed recipes.

The numbers specified behind the dishes offered on the menu, on the boards at the counters or on the cafeteria signs provide information on the presence of any additives subject to labelling and the 14 most common allergens according to the currently valid Food Information Regulation (Lebensmittelinformationsverordnung – LMIV). This information helps customers suffering from allergies and intolerances to choose their dishes. It has no bearing for customers not suffering from allergies or intolerances.

For further information, please refer to our page "What We Offer" under the keyword " Allergens & Additives".

In order to enable customers suffering from allergies or intolerances to take a relaxed lunch break, we have introduced a system of additive and allergen labelling.

For further information, please refer to our page What We Offer" under the keyword " Allergens & Additives".

Show details

We request product data sheets for all food we purchase from the respective suppliers, containing all information about ingredients and additives as well as allergens. This information is entered into our merchandise management system and verified by a second person before any item is released. This allergen information is automatically transferred into our recipes, thus always being currently displayed in the online menu and on the monitors.

Despite maximum accuracy and diligence, we cannot avoid traces of allergens other than those indicated for a meal from being transmitted. All our employees are regularly and intensely trained regarding this matter.

Show details

On the monitors, small pictograms offer you guidance. Vegan food offered in our showcases is marked by a green spot. If you have any doubts, you are welcome to ask our employees on site at any time and contact the competent student restaurant or cafeteria management.

We also offer lunch to our customers on Saturdays. At our student restaurant Mensa am Park they can choose from a restricted selection each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This offer is also valid during semester break.
