Children are most welcome!
The canteens are a family-friendly environment: if you let us know in advance, we are happy to reserve a family table for you. We have high chairs in Ulm for the little ones and toys at the pay points. The Studierendenwerk (student services) is happy to heat up your BYO baby food in the Mensa and in the cafeterias. Ulm University has a nappy changing room underneath the Mensa.

Students’ children up to the age of 10 years receive free meals in the Studierendenwerk canteens.
