We've missed you!

Restaurant Dunant, Coupure, Sterre and Merelbeke (08:30) and cafetaria UZ Gent (09:00) and cafetaria Boekentoren (08:00) are open! However, some things are different now due to the corona measures that are still in force.
  • Only takeaway: the canteen is temporarily closed for customers and is used as study and teaching space consequently only takeaway food and drinks are available
  • Only cashless: pay quick and contactless using your UGent-card, you identify yourself and pay in one wave. Go to, use your UGent-account and top up your balance. You can also pay with your credit or debit card (bancontact, Maestro, Visa, Mastercard).
  • Follow the flow: arrows and dots indicate the one-way flow, follow them and keep 1.5 metres away from others.
  • Reduce the queue and offer to bring food and drinks for your colleagues or fellow students: the former restriction of one hot meal or 8 sandwiches is temporarily withdraw
  • Wear a face mask and sanitise your hands at the entrance of the restaurant or cafeteria: you can pick every item that is prepackaged yourself, but only touch what you intend to buy. Pastry, fruit, hot soup and hot meals will be given to you by a staff member.
  • Reduced offer:
    • restos + cafeterias: breakfast puff pastry, sandwiches, salad bowls, soup (hot and cold), desserts and drinks
    • restos: hot takeaway meals and cold takeaway meals: we start with only offering spaghetti but will we offer more meals by the start of the academic year
  • disposable cutlery: disposable cutlery was already removed from our student restaurants, therefor you have to bring your own cutlery
Ordering online via our order form
From now on you will also be able to order your food online with same-day pick-up at a time and location of your choosing.
  • Please place your orders before 10AM for the noon service and before 5PM for the evening service
  • Take your order number to the restaurant and the customer flow will guide you to the pick-up point where an employee will give you your order.
Important: there will be no separate pick-up points for online orders because we do not have the space to organize this extra customer flow in a safe manner.
  • To limit the queue-size we will no longer cap the amount of items one UGent card can buy. Contrary to before, we now wish encourage you to pick up both yours and your colleague’s breakfast or lunch. Either by ordering online and having one colleague pick up all your items, or by passing on your order to your colleague who can then bring it to you.
