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.

You can use it to heat up our cold dishes or to heat up your own dishes.

UGent students and personnel pay the price that is mentioned on the tv-screens, this is the subsidized price.

Restaurants and cafeterias: opening hours and location

Order your sandwich, salad bowl or cold dish online via our order form

You can 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 are no separate pick-up points for online orders because we do not have the space to organize this extra customer flow. Except in Resto De Brug, the pick up point is at the start of the free flow.
