The canteen team
You can pay without cash in all of our canteens and coffee bars by using the MensaCard. This makes it easier for both you and us to avoid rummaging around for coins or exact change, shortens the lines at the cashiers, and enables you to enjoy your meal quicker. From 2019, you can only pay with the MensaCard in all our our canteens and coffee bars.
The MensaCard can be reloaded at the loading machines or by using the direct debit system (“Autoload”).
Where can I get my MensaCard?
At every cash desk in the canteens and coffeebars of studierendenWERK BERLIN you will receive your MensaCard for a deposit of €1.55 Please show your student ID or a confirmation from the university that you are an employee.
Do you have questions about the MensaCard? Feel free to write us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The procedure called 'autoload' corresponds to the direct debit procedure which is widely used also ouside higher education.
Further information can be found here.
Do you have any questions about the MensaCard? Please send us an e-mail to email@example.com .
If your MensaCard does not work, you can contact the staff at the cashiers in the major canteens at any time.
If you lose your MensaCard, we can block your card and give you the remaining value in cash if you give us the card number. That’s why it’s so important to note the number when you receive the card, and keep it in a safe place.
Did you lose your MensaCard or do you have further questions about it? Feel free to write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CampusCard does not equal MensaCard
The CampusCard with an inbuilt MensaCard has already been introduced at some universities. The numbers are not identical! Therefore, please note the extra number that is on the back of your Campus Card. We can only refund your balance and deposit with this number! You can find more infos about the CampusCard here: https://campuscard.berlin/
Children’s meals: We provide free canteeen meals for students’ children aged six and under.
The “food traffic lights” evaluate and identify dishes using the standard colour-coding of a traffic light. We’re all familiar with the meaning of the different colours of a traffic light. Here, the colours – as recommended by the German Nutrition Society (DGE) – represent the overall medical/nutritional value of the respective dishes. However, the color coding does not denote an evaluation of their environmental footprint.
The system is easy to apply. Each dish is marked with a stoplight colour. The more ‘green’ dishes you choose, the better the composition of your meal. But if you’d like to use the full-fledged system for your eating habits, you don’t have to stick to only ‘green’ dishes. You can still achieve the full benefit from eating ‘red’ or ‘yellow’ dishes (occasionally for the former, more regularly for the latter – e.g. 10 % red, 30 % yellow).
This decision-making aid was developed in collaboration with Dr. Peinelt of Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences.
GREEN = Best choice! The more often, the better!
YELLOW = A good choice! Every now and then.
RED = Not too often! Best combined with green.
Of course, our canteens aren’t just places for eating and drinking – people come here to meet up between classes and chat with other students.
You can also study here, but please be considerate to guests who are here to eat.
