In our canteens and cafeterias, you can pay easily and cashless using the integrated payment function in your student ID. The student ID is therefore also your canteen card (Mensakarte). You can top up your student ID at the card machine that you can find in front of our canteens or cafeterias - unfortunately, it is not possible to top up at the checkout in our canteens and cafeterias. The card machine only accepts banknotes, no coins or card payments.
At our card machines, guests - i.e. anyone who is neither enrolled nor employed at the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences or the University of Koblenz-Landau - can get a guest card and top it up with at least 5 euros as a deposit. Since the card machine does not give any change, any difference is booked as a credit. We recommend topping up with at least 15 euros for the first time - this covers the deposit and a guest menu (price: 5.80 euros). The remaining credit is sufficient for a drink and a coffee afterwards. You can return the guest cards at the checkout in the cafeterias or in our service office (see contact below). We will then transfer the remaining balance including the deposit to your account.
Payment of remaining credit
If you want to have the remaining balance on your student ID cashed out, please contact our service office (see contact below). If the credit is less than 5 euros, unfortunately we cannot transfer the amount to your account. In this case, you have to come to the service office in person to receive the remaining balance in cash. Please make an appointment in advance (see below for contact details).
