In our dining halls every day you can choose from two menus - one of which is meatless - and also a diverse salad bar during term time. If notified in advance, vegan* meals can also be prepared.

weekly menu

Every menu contains

  • soup,
  • main meal with a choice of salad or vegetables,
  • dessert.

At our popular extra counters every day during term time we also offer several additional menus to choose from.

Hungry people who do not want to use our dining hall range of food can choose from the wide range of offers at our cafeterias or at the bistro on the University campus. The latter offers a weekly changing bistro menu available all-day as well as a tempting cake counter in the afternoons. From 2.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays you can buy a slice of cake plus a coffee beverage of your choice for €2.50.

At the popular extra counter at lunch time you can get a variety of pasta meals with a choice of sauce for the normal price of a menu. A starter, a salad and a dessert is served with the pasta. During lecture-free times the extra counter is usually closed. Please check the times in the relevant news entries.

*Information about the vegan menu offer: Until 10 am from Monday to Friday you can pay for a vegan menu (regular price for a menu) at the cafeteria cash desks, where it is promoted daily on a small blackboard. You get a receipt which also serves as a meal voucher at the dining hall cash desks. If, as part of the normal weekly menu, one of the menus is prepared completely vegan anyway (and marked "VEGAN"), the additional vegan menu and the payment process at the cafeteria cash desk are omitted.

Special diet for health reasons

Do you rely on special dietary requirements for health reasons? Do you suffer from a lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, an allergy against certain foods (such as nuts)? Please contact our head chefs. It is possible that a menu adjusted to your illness can be prepared for you (after prior notification). Please contact Wolfgang Augustin (phone: 0261/287-1121).

Tax on second homes

Since 1st June 2012 the city of Koblenz has raised a tax on second homes. You legally bypass this tax on all second homes and other secondary residences within the city’s area by registering your primary residence in Koblenz. If you’re looking for somewhere to rent on the private housing market, please consider the district boundaries to see if you might be liable for tax on second homes.

The housing market in Koblenz

Please consider the housing exchange of the Koblenz Student Service Organisation and the notices upon the bulletin board. You can also find suitable flats or rooms there because many attractive offers neither make it onto the Internet nor into the daily newspaper. You can find the notice boards at the Student Service Organisation, in the lobby of the dining hall (Mensa), in the foyer of the library and at the larger auditoriums. A lot of flat-for-rent notices can usually be found there at the start of a semester. Do also put up your own want ads.

We advise students on looking for suitable accommodation.
