Mensa am Turm
Vegan and vegetarian menus with various side dishes as well as a salad buffet and desserts are available every day.
"pure l vegan l vegetarian" has been the motto in the 100% meat-free canteen at the tower since October 2021, also awarded as Planetary Health Mensa: From Monday to Friday there are a lot of tasty and fresh vegan and vegetarian dishes, side dishes, a salad buffet and desserts.

Currently, guests wear masks voluntarily and the Studentenwerk also appeals to guests to keep their distance if this is possible.
The seats in the directly adjacent Café am Turm are also available to canteen guests if required, so there are around 400 seats, of which around 60 are outdoors at permanently installed tables and benches.
Important: Only cashless payment is possible. Card recharge machines are located in the entrancels area and in the dining room behind the tills.
The canteen is located in the former wash hall of the University of Göttingen. The "tower room" makes the canteen at the tower with its striking architecture something very special. Steam escaped from the tower when it was still functioning as the exhaust air tower of the university laundry.
The current tower room was only made useable in 1994, after the missing floor had been installed. Under the tower are still underground catacombs, through which in former times oxygen flowed, to supply these to the burner in the foot of the tower.
The tower also forms a beautiful connection to inner-city fauna: kestrels have been nesting on the tower for 28 years.
