In our cafeterias you can order breakfast pastry, sandwiches, salad bowls and cold dishes (to heat up). All cafeterias have a dining area, however, at the moment the dining area of Ledeganck, Aula and Boekentoren are closed due to CO2-restrictions.

UGent students and personnel pay the price that is mentioned on the tv-screens, this is the subsidized price. The restaurants are open to everyone, however, depending on to which group you belong you pay a different price.
