The dictionary aims to help international students find their way through the Mensa.Illustrated Mensa Dictionary
The Studierendenwerke are Germany’s most important provider of dining services in higher education. They offer healthy, tasty and fresh food, affordably, in over 1000 student restaurants called “Mensas” (Latin for “table”) as well as cafeterias, restaurants, bistros, and coffee bars. Today’s Mensa meals are modern and rich in diversity: there is a growing share of vegetarian, vegan as well as organic dishes, and the Studierendenwerke emphasise sustainability, combatting global warming and regional products throughout their dining services.
Healthy food provided on campus is one thing. But the Mensas and cafeterias are a places for communication and meeting as well.
