Food and Beverages

Studierendenwerk Freiburg serves a total of 23 "Mensa" and cafeterias in Freiburg and its other university locations. During the lecture period, around 12,000 meals are prepared every day.
In the "Mensa", there is something for every taste and budget, from a quick plate to a menu. In addition, you can put together your own meal at pasta and wok buffets in all the large dining halls.

We take special requests into account. For example, vegan dishes are marked. The MensaBistro in Rempartstrasse offers certified organic food every day.
By the way: children under ten years of age of students get an additional free children's plate to their parents' meal.
Students with a food intolerance please contact the Mensa staff directly before eating to find out details about the ingredients.



Quality control

Regular TÜV-Tests and implementation of health laws ensure a high quality food standard including ingredients and preparation. Independent regulators and certifiers regularly control our gastronomic facilities. Since 2011, we have sourced exclusively MSC certified fish and eggs from alternative farming and have been awarded ‘The Goldenen Ei’. Student Services Freiburg co-operates with Student Services Südwest in a purchasing co-operative. Eight Student Services in Baden-Württemberg as well as Kaiserlautern, Trier and Saarland are involved in the co-operation. The co-operation’s purchasing power is very influential and maintains development and implementation of our quality standards. Our common goal is sustainability and is reached through our influential co-operation. Only organic fair trade coffee is served in the co-operation’s cafeterias. Other products are also regulated for example; ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard do not contain artificial sweeteners or preservatives.  We source chiefly local produce
