Cafeterias and Campus Restaurants

The Munich Student Union (Studentenwerk) runs eight larger student cafeterias, called Mensen, and several smaller cafes. The Mensen are located at major university buildings throughout Munich. You can find reasonably priced lunches with various side dishes and always at least one vegetarian meal. The cafes sell snacks and drinks throughout the rest of the day.

The Munich Student Union runs a total of 33 cafeterias, StuBistros, StuCafés, and espresso bars, with detailed descriptions online. You can even peruse the daily menus online. There are an ever-increasing number of organic options, all for affordable prices. The main cafeteria (Mensa) is Leopoldstr. 13a. During the semester, it is open Monday to Thursday, 11:00am – 2:30pm, and on Friday, 11:00am – 1:55pm. Breakfast is served in the cafeterias and StuCafés.

You can use cash at all locations and may purchase debit cards (with a valid university ID, or Studentenausweis) to use at most locations. As a student of LMU Munich, you can pay, cash-free, with your mensa card. Please see information about payments in student cafeterias.
