In its various dining halls and cafeterias, the Studierendenwerk Essen-Duisburg offers a varied choice of main meals and drinks. Everybody is welcome in the Studierendenwerk's gastronomical facilities: students as well as employees of the university and guests.

The focus of our seven dining halls is on providing meals for lunch. Be it vegetarian, vegan, with meat, or with fish: Every day, you will be offered a varied choice of main components which you can personalize by adding different side dishes. In addition to that, we organize weeks with dishes from different countries or for special occasions on a regular basis.

Apart from going to the main dining hall, you can also spend lunch time in our restaurant on Essen campus and eat à la carte.

A total of eight cafeterias offer sweet and hearty snacks like pastry or sandwiches, small meals as well as cold and warm drinks.

Whenever it is possible, we rely on regional, seasonal, and organic offers, exclusively using organic rice and noodles as well as fair-trade coffee which is usually organic, too.

Our services on campus apart, we also provide food for the Studierendenwerk's child care centers and run a conference service which caters different events, celebrations, and conferences associated with the universities.

You can find all further information about the location, opening hours and offerings of our dining halls and cafeterias via the navigation on this page.

Further more your child can get an extra children-plate in our cantines. All children up to the age of six can compose their own lunch for 50 Cent.
