Children up to the age of 14, accompanied by their parents (father and/or mother) who are enrolled at a university of Göttingen, can eat for free in the canteens of the Göttingen Studentenwerk.
In conjunction with a dinner for parents (usually one main component and two secondary components) and after presentation of the valid MensaKidsCard, the young guests can enjoy a meal including a water for free of choice. The validity of the MensaKidsCard is based on the age of the child and the enrolment period of the parents. You can download the application form below (in German only).  


How do I apply for a MensaKidsCard? 

You can easily download and fill out the application form for the MensaKidsCard here.
Hand in the signed form at the info box in the foyer of the central canteen (Zentralmensa) or in the dorm administration in the Albrecht-Thaer-Weg or in the Servicebüro Nord.

Please also bring along a current enrolment certificate and a valid student ID and a copy of your child's birth certificate. 

When registering, our employees will provide you with a declaration of consent to collect and process your data for signature and provide you with a leaflet on Article 13 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

To apply for a follow-up card, it is sufficient to submit the current enrolment certificate or a valid student card.
