    Since the reopening of the cafeteria on 28.09.2020, the number of guests in the canteen Straße der Nationen has been very low throughout, so that we are still testing until the end of October whether opening it beyond this is still economically viable. If the number of guests does not increase in the next two weeks, we will unfortunately be forced to close the facility again in November. We are aware of the unfavorable access situation in the Uniteil Straße der Nationen, but unfortunately we have no influence on it. So please use the Mensa within your possibilities, so that it can still provide you with food in November!
