The main emphasis of the Studentenwerk is the gastronomical care of the students. You will find our dining facilities and cafeterias nearly all around the university departments in Göttingen. Altogether, there are 4000 seats.

Therefore, it´s not surprising that approx. 17.000 customers use our varied menus per day. They know that the selection is not only affordable, but also healthy and diverse.

To make our service complete, we are offering a party catering service. You have the choice of either home delivery or to your facility on the Campus or to using the dining facilities of the Studentenwerk.

In comparison to other student services, the Studentenwerk Göttingen is first place in the field of gastronomy. We have received the following awards in the past:
The dining facility "Mensa am Turm" received the award "Goldene Tablett" from the university magazine "UNICUM" in the years 2004, 2005 and 2006. More than 20.000 students took part in a nationwide survey to rate their favorite dining facility by various criteria. Our main dining facility "Zentralmensa" also received an award; the "Silberne Tablett", also from the university magazine "UNICUM" in 2002.

The canteens and cafeterias of the Studentenwerk Göttingen were certified by ECARF on 20th of May 2015 as facilities which provide a special service for allergy sufferers. Thanks to high transparency and accuracy during the preparation of food, people who suffer from allergies and intolerances can find a wide range of food to eat free of complaints.

Our efforts are rewarded by the fullest satisfaction of our customers. Shown by regular surveys and proven by the statistics: each student eats approx. 87 times a year in our dining facilities. This is more than double as the nationwide average and speaks for the quality of our menu.
Our goal is satisfied customers. Therefore, we look forward to your suggestions, compliments or criticism.
