- Deutsches Studentenwerk
Whoever eats in the canteen is eating at the Studentenwerk. Their offer is diverse and takes guests' wishes into account. When preparing the food, great value is placed on freshness, quality, selection, hygiene, nutritionist physiology and optimising nutrition value. The Studentenwerke offer modern food that is both fresh and delicious.
The cafeterias offer a wide range of beverages, sandwiches, cakes, snacks and coffee. There is something for everyone’s taste and budget. Students appreciate this affordable, diversified offer.
The introduction of Bachelor's and Master's degrees has changed the rhythm of life at universities. Many canteens and cafeterias have therefore extended their opening hours and are now also offering comprehensive catering services late into the evening and at weekends.
But canteens are more than just places to eat. Students also like to visit them to socialise and relax. Many Studentenwerke offer culture, art and special events in their canteens.
Rather than making a profit, the focus of the Studentenwerke is on fulfilling its social responsibility to provide students at all university locations with good, affordable food. They also run catering facilities at smaller study locations where the student number can sometimes be very low. The inevitable losses incurred at these smaller facilities can only be redressed by higher turnovers at larger canteens.
