Canteens and cafeterias

Once a day there is a moment, at which everybody shares the same notion: lunch time!

First and foremost, all of our cafeterias are dedicated to flavour, as well as to the general enjoyment of the student's dining experience. We offer a tasty variety of reasonably priced, healthy dishes accompanied by the friendly service of our staff.

The canteens provided by the student services department are more than the sum of their culinary options. These facilities welcome up to 20.000 visitors every day, who come here to socialize and relax.

We encourage all kinds of feedback – contact us by mail or approach members of the cafeteria staff directly.
