Canteens and Cafeterias


Our canteens offer is a wide range of inexpensive, tasty and healthy food. Every day, you can choose from at least four main dishes. Our changing speciality and promotion weeks ensure you can enjoy some additional variety on your plate. In many of the canteens, you can also serve yourself at the buffets, get freshly made wok and grill dishes at the counter, or enjoy stone-baked pizzas and tartes flambées.


Our cafeterias are popular places where you can relax, meet people, or study together. In our ten cafeterias, you can get various kinds of coffees, tea, cold drinks and a lot of snacks. You can also choose between fresh pastries and fruit. Some cafeterias even have hot dishes and long opening hours – so that you are always well catered for.
