Find out which catering facilities are re-opening

Since mid-May some of our catering facilities have re-opened. We offer meals to take away and there are marked seating areas. In addition to cakes and snacks such as sandwiches, which we prepare freshly for you on request, there will initially be two warm lunch dishes to choose from.

Since there is currently no classroom teaching at the universities, our staff is on short-time work. The spare space in our canteens is not left unused. We support the University of Potsdam by providing free places for examinations in our canteens Griebnitzsee and Am Neuen Palais.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again! Further catering facilities are going to re-open little by little. You will find all updates on this page.
