Canteen and cafeteria

When hunger strikes, you can head to the canteen, which offers a selection of different hot meals each day and also has a salad bar. Afterwards you can enjoy a piece of home-made cake in the cafeteria. Payments are made with your canteen card, which also functions as a copying card.

Lunch and snacks

Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg runs 25 canteens and other gastronomic services at various universities in Bavaria, including the canteen and the cafeteria in Eichstätt.

During the lecture period the cafeteria is open from 8.15 a.m. on weekdays until 7.00 p.m. from Monday to Thursday and until 2.45 p.m. on Fridays. The home-made cake, which is baked fresh every day, is always popular!

Your canteen card – also your copying card

When you start at the KU you will need to get yourself a canteen card. You will use this card to make cashless payments in the canteen and cafeteria. In Eichstätt canteen cards for students and staff are available from the cafeteria for a fee of 5 euros. You can put money on your card using the machines in the foyer of the canteen building. Your canteen card also functions as a copying card. You can use the University’s copiers and scanners straight away. Scans can be sent to any KU e-mail address or saved on a USB stick. If you also want to use the canteen card for printing, you will need to register it online first at

To do so, enter the eight- or nine-digit number printed on your card. Your card will then be linked to your university account.

Please note: If you lose your canteen card it cannot usually be replaced. However, you can have it blocked. If you lose your card, please report this to info(at), stating your card number.
