How to pay


The student ID cards of Münster University of Applied Sciences and University of Münster combine several functions. They are a student card as well as a library card and can be used to pay at copiers and in the canteens. All other students in Münster and guests can obtain their MensaCard at one of our info-points, either in the “Mensa am Aasee” or in the “Mensa am Ring” from Monday to Friday between 11.30 a.m. and 2 p.m., as well as at the cash registers in all our student canteens and bistros.

The MensaCard is available at a price of € 5.00. This is a non-refundable card fee. You can determine your desired starting balance yourself and load it onto the card. For students it is initially valid for three years from the date of issue and loses its respective reduced-price category on expiry. You will be informed at the cash desk displays as soon as the card is about to expire, and you can then have the card extended at the info-points.

To avoid waiting times for you and for other guests we ask you to always keep sufficient credit on your MensaCard. You can top up your MensaCard free of charge with € 5.00, € 10.00, € 20.00 or € 50.00 up to a maximum credit of € 60.00 at our card reload machines. If you top up your card at one of our cash desks, our staff will charge you a fee of € 0.25.
