Sustainability even in times of corona: Mensa TO GO and TO PACK

You can now bring your own containers!

Mensa TO GO or TO PACK
The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe relies on the use of recyclable or renewable materials as part of its sustainability activities.

We only use plastics in our facilities where it is absolutely necessary for hygienic or other reasons.




Since November 16th, 2020 you have the option to choose from two variants:

  1. Mensa TO GO: All dishes can be taken in sustainable disposable packaging. An environmental contribution of 0.50 Euro is charged for this, which is added to the regular meal price. Since we attach great importance to food hygiene and safety, we use high-priced materials that are safe and hygienic when used once in the heating process. The environmental contribution of 0.50 Euro for the to-go packaging only covers these costs in part, the remainder is taken over by the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe. You can find more information on our sustainability activities here.
  2. Mensa TO PACK: Alternatively, you can pack the food in containers you have brought with you. Just tell this our employees at the serving counter. You will then receive the dish on reusable plates and you can pack it yourself at the packaging station that has been set up. Partial to-go is not possible in this case.
