The three sites of the university have different canteen services.
The University of Music has a canteen on the Cologne site which provides a standard and a vegetarian lunch, as well as a salad bar, every day throughout the semester, between 11.30 am and 2.30 pm.
The canteen is operated by the Cologne Student Services Provider. Payment in the canteen can be made exclusively by means of the Student ID card. Cash is not accepted.
During semester time, the cafeteria is open from Mondays to Thursdays from 8.30 am - 5.30 pm, and on Fridays until 3.30 pm, and sells filled rolls, cakes, small snacks and specialist coffees.
Here you can pay either with a Student ID card or with cash.
In the area of Cologne surrounding the University of Music, there are also numerous cafés, snack bars and supermarkets where you can buy things to eat and drink.
There is also a canteen on the Wuppertal site which is operated by the Wuppertal Student Services Provider. During the semester it is open from 11.30 am until 2.00 pm (Fridays until 1.45 pm).
Unfortunately, the Aachen site does not have its own canteen. However, with the purchase of a Student Guest Card (EUR 2.00) you may use the canteens of the RWTH in Aachen at reasonable student rates.
As the University of Music is in a very central location, there are countless cafés, snack bars and restaurants where you can eat and drink in the immediate surrounding area.
You can find details of the locations of all the canteens in Aachen, as well as the conditions of use, here.
