Canteens and cafeterias are only offering take-away meals

Last updated: 02. November 2020

As of 2 November 2020, our canteens and cafeterias will only be allowed to offer take-away meals.

This is because the Bavarian regulation on infection prevention measures no. 8 (8. BayIfSMV) dated Friday, 30 October 2020 stipulates that the only canteens that are allowed to open are “staff canteens that are not open to the public”. According to the Bavarian State Ministry of Public Health and Care Services, the canteens and cafeterias operated by Studentenwerk institutions do not fall into this category.

See below for the new rules that will be in place at our canteens and cafeterias during the “lockdown light”:

  • Our canteens and cafeterias will remain open for you as far as possible. However, we can only offer take-away meals.
  • You will not need to pre-order your takeaway.
  • We will charge you €0.50 for take-away food containers. Optionally you can bring your own lunchboxes.
  • There will be no cutlery available.
  • Our mensaVital meals will be served without drinks.
  • You will no longer need to register as a guest.
  • To find out whether your canteen/cafeteria is currently open, please take a look at the corresponding subpage.
  • Our canteens and cafeterias are open to everyone. Since we will only be offering take-away meals, we can also accept guests that are not students or staff members of the higher education institutions or the Studentenwerk Würzburg.

We are open!

Canteen on Campus Hubland Süd / Frankenstube / Cafeteria on Campus Hubland Süd

Closed for refurbishment until 2021/22!


PETA awards stars to Würzburg canteen

Each year, the PETA animal rights organisation chooses the most vegan-friendly canteen of the year. A total of 37 Studentenwerk organisations were competing for the title of PETA’s “Most Vegan-Friendly Canteen 2018”. What was different in this year’s contest is that there was a limit of one award per organisation. This limit was introduced in order to ensure that bigger Studentenwerk organisations that operate two or more canteens do not have an advantage over smaller organisations. Four canteens operated by the Studentenwerk Würzburg had entered the contest. PETA stated that all four of them would have deserved an award but they decided to go for the biggest one: The Mensateria on Campus Hubland Nord received three stars and can now count itself among Germany’s most vegan-friendly canteens.
