Children’s portion plate

With children in the canteen

A visit to the canteen is usually exciting for our youngest guests. To make your visit to us more pleasant and easier, we have children's plates and tray trolleys.


Free meals for children (under six years) of students

How it works:

The student parent takes their child to a food counter in one of our canteens (city center, Lichtwiese, Schöfferstraße or Dieburg) and asks for a children's portion plate (“Kinderteller”). The food counter staff fills the plate with the chosen side orders.

Please make sure to show your student ID at the cash point.

Enjoy your meal!

Tray trolleys

We have tray trolleys to make your visit to our canteens more pleasant.

For example, if you

  • are not so good on foot,
  • are heavily laden,
  • have one or more children with you, or
  • simply transport several trays.

After your meal or snack, please return the cars to the signposted "parking spaces" so that others can also find the trolleys.


Locations of the tray trolleys in the Mensa Stadtmitte:

  •  left of the Mensa Gabel
  • in front of the Bistro Stadtmitte
  • on the 1st floor: opposite the market restaurant to the left of the entrance to the housing service
