For lunch FUBiS recommends the student cafeteria which is called "Mensa" at German universities. There are many choices, including vegetarian, vegan and pork-free options, a salad and antipasti bar, fresh juices, desserts, and sweets. A warm meal costs between 1.45 and 3.00 euros. Warm lunch is served between 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The Mensa already opens at 08:00 a.m., though, and offers snacks and drinks during the complete opening hours.
How can I pay in the Mensa?
To allow a quick and smooth payment, Mensa meals are paid for using your student ID card (also used in other cafeterias and some cafés on Campus Dahlem). Should you not have received your student ID by the first day of class due to a late enrolment, there are guest cards available for purchase at the Mensa.
Where can I get a student ID card?
You will receive your student ID card at the FUBiS orientation meeting. The machines to top up your card are located in the entrance hall on the ground floor of the Mensa as well as on the first floor. The card can only be topped up using cash.
