Mensa Backstage

You can find our dining halls and cafeterias at almost every university location. There's always something good for you to eat.

Delicious, inexpensive and "Naturally Fresh!"

Our food is delicious, inexpensive and "naturally fresh"! Our dining halls provide you with hot food at lunchtime - whether with meat, vegetarian or vegan. There is something for everyone. In our cafeterias you can get sandwiches, salads, sweets, coffee & much more.

Worth knowing

Nine canteens and nine cafeterias are spread across the various university locations in Hanover and Garbsen. There is sure to be one near you!

We offer a variety of dishes made from fresh regional and seasonal ingredients.

Students receive discounted meals in the dining halls.

We are always open to criticism and suggestions. You can write to us via the Mensa forum, Facebook, Instagram, by email or the contact form.

Your favourite roll is no longer available, you find a dish oversalted or the oat milk at the coffee self-service is out? Just ask our staff in the dining halls and cafeterias, they will help you out quickly and easily.

For guests with walking disabilities, wheelchairs or strollers, elevators, ramps and cafeteria trolleys are available for a barrie-free lunch in the dining halls.

Students' children eat for free in our canteens  - with the MensaCard Kids.

If there is no suitable lunch offer and you want to eat together with your friends, microwaves are available in the dining halls for the food you bring with you.

Attention, changes due to the Corona pandemic: Due to strict hygiene regulations, microwaves are currently not available for self-service.

Cooks, system caterers, restaurant specialists and ecotrophologists in the businesses and behind the scenes ensure an extensive range of top-quality products.

Fair trade, seasonal and regional products, waste avoidance through recycling and the reduction of disposable items - we are committed to sustainable action.

Pasta, spaetzle, sauces, soups are produced by us in our own production, without finished products and additives.
