General information about the Ghent University student restaurants

Ghent University has a wide range of student restaurants. Staff are also welcome. They are all situated in the vicinity of the faculties. Service and food are of a high quality, the prices are the lowest in town.

In our cafeterias you can order breakfast pastry, sandwiches, salad bowls and cold dishes (to heat up).  In our restaurants you will find the same offer plus warm dishes. A nice variety of pork, poultry, fish, veggie and vegan dishes are served everyday. All restaurants and cafeterias have a dining area. In the dining area there is a microwave at your disposal. You can use it to heat up our cold dishes (also halal) or to heat up your own dishes.

Do not forget to bring your student or personnel card with you: otherwise you must pay a higher price for your food. Ghent University 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.

You can pay only pay cashless with a credit or debit card (bancontact, Maestro, Visa, Mastercard).
