The gastronomic supply of the students of Göttingen is a focal point of the Studentenwerk. Our canteens and cafeterias are located at almost all university locations in the city. In total, they offer around 4,500 seats.

No wonder, then, that around 17,000 guests use this varied offer every day. They know that the selection is not only reasonably priced, but also healthy and varied.

Our canteens

The Studentenwerk Göttingen has four canteens. Every day, we serve up to 10,000 meals there. Both in the semester and in the lecture-free time, a large number of meals is available.

Our cafeterias

When you feel a little hungry, our ten cafés offer a varied menu: sandwiches, cakes and other small snacks can all be enjoyed there. We also have hot and cold drinks on offer.
