The mandatory obligation to wear a face mask no longer applies since April 4, 2022. However, all people present on campus are urged to behave out of consideration for the community and to respect the need for protection of their counterparts in daily interactions to comply with the proven hygiene rules and to continue to wear a medical mask indoors.


The University Restaurant (Mensa “Academica”, denoted by ME on the campus map) is located near the main University entrance in the C-building. It offers a varied selection of meals including vegetarian and vegan options. The Mensa only accepts payments via EC cards or Mensa-Guest-Cards; payment by cash or credit/debit card is not possible.
