Shopping areas

Students' time is valuable too. And when time is short, it is nice to be able to quickly take care of a few things before or after meeting friends for a meal at one of our student canteens. That's why we have integrated two rows of shops in our canteens "Mensa am Ring" and "Mensa am Aasee".

So come and visit us!


Shopping area in the "Mensa am Ring"

In the foyer of the student canteen “Mensa am Ring”, students will find the “Foyer-Treff” and “Viva Café” as well as a service branch of the health insurance company, the “Techniker Krankenkasse” and the "Mensa Copy" shop. And in case you need cash, an ATM of the Münsterland-Ost can also be found here.
