Free children menu

With immediate effect, the Studierendenwerk will be donating a free lunch every day to the children of students at TU University Dortmund, FH Dortmund and FH Südwestfalen.

This offer applies to children up to the age of ten. Students can choose between the dining halls on the North and South Campus (main dining hall, Archeteria, kostBar), the facilities on Sonnenstraße or Max Ophuels-Platz, or one of the dining halls at the FH Südwestfalen in Iserlohn, Meschede, Hagen or Soest.

In general, the meal is free of charge as long as the person accompanying the child purchases their own full meal. While the presentation of a birth certificate is sufficient at the FH Südwestfalen locations, the universities in Dortmund issue a separate child food ID card that must be shown at the checkout.

Students Parents of TU Dortmund University can obtain a child ID card from the Family-Service after presenting their student ID card and the child's birth certificate. There are seven possible motifs between which your child can choose.

In all other establishments, youngsters have a free choice between the hot meals and the dishes at the buffet. Please make sure to take only portions that are suitable for children at the buffet!

To make the little guests feel welcome in the refectories, 600 colorful and at the same time break-proof children's plates have been purchased. The individual motifs emerged from a painting competition at the Studierendenwerk's daycare center, the "Kita im Grünen" (until February 2017: Kita "4 Jahreszeiten"), on the theme of "My favorite food". The idea for the "Children's Plate" was developed in cooperation with the TU Dortmund University Staff Office and the Family Service of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences, with the Studierendenwerk Dortmund providing the funding.

Further information about this offer can be found on the homepage of the Studierendenwerk (Student Union) Dortmund.
