your gastro facil­ities
at uni siegen

In our gast­ro­nomic facil­ities, we try to recon­cile economic effi­ciency and ecology. We want to offer you a sustain­able style of eating that follows ecolo­gical, sustain­able and social prin­ciples at an afford­able price.

In the campus catering of the Stud­i­er­enden­werk Siegen, a team of almost 130 dedic­ated colleagues works to process regional and seasonal products into enjoy­able and whole­some meals in the most resource-conserving way possible.

We already process a good 24 tonnes of food from controlled organic cultiv­a­tion in our facil­ities every year. Fresh meat, milk, baked goods and fresh veget­ables are largely sourced directly from regional suppliers.

Our entire coffee and tea range comes from fair trade and certi­fied organic cultivation.

We have completely converted our take-away busi­ness to reusable systems. With our deposit-free LogiCup coffee cups and the deposit-free, digital reusable system VYTAL, you can enjoy our to-go offer­ings completely without pack­aging waste.

Since April 2021, we have been supporting the broiler initi­ative of the Albert Schweitzer Found­a­tion (www.masthuhn-initiative.de). The initi­ative origin­ates from an asso­ci­ation of around 30 animal welfare organ­isa­tions with the essen­tial goal of improving the keeping of broiler chickens.

Sustain­able. Climate-friendly. Respons­ible. Delicious!

Sustain­ab­ility

We received three stars from Peta for our
vegan food in the Canteen AR.

We use high-quality products from the region, because this means short distances, quality and fresh­ness. Thus, we obtain our meat and sausage products mainly from regional butchers. Like­wise, we use seasonal products in the produc­tion of our dishes, some of which are of organic quality.
The topic “sustain­ab­ility” is of great import­ance in our gast­ro­nomic oper­a­tions. Thus, we try to actively live and shape our respons­ib­ility towards people, animals and the environment.

Since April 2021, we have been supporting the broiler chicken initi­ative of the Albert Schweitzer Found­a­tion (www.masthuhn-initiative.de).

Enjoy deli­cious and fresh!

 

We are organic certified 

Organic seal

The Stud­i­er­enden­werk is certi­fied organic. The organic seal stands for the use of food from organic agri­cul­ture and organic food processing. We use a variety of organic products in our catering operations.

Our coffee is Fair Trade traded and certi­fied organic 

Fairtrade

Our entire coffee and tea range is organic and fair trade certi­fied. The ingredi­ents of our “Lemonaid Lemonade” are also organ­ic­ally grown and come from fair trade.

The Fairtrade seal stands for the fact that all ingredi­ents avail­able from fair produc­tion have been traded entirely in accord­ance with the rules of the Fairtrade stand­ards that apply world­wide. In this way, small­holder cooper­at­ives receive more stable prices, more long-term and trans­parent trading rela­tion­ships, and an addi­tional premium for community projects. The stand­ards also include criteria on demo­cratic organ­iz­a­tional struc­tures, envir­on­mental protec­tion and safe working condi­tions. The focus is always on the producers.

 

Our service for the severely disabled

In consulta­tion with the working group “Barrier-free Univer­sity”, the Stud­i­er­enden­werk Siegen offers support for blind, visu­ally impaired or wheel­chair users when eating in the canteen. Inter­ested persons can contact the kitchen manage­ment on 0271 740‑3129 to receive assist­ance when eating in the refectory. You will then be expected in the canteen vesti­bule. A member of staff will go into the canteen with you, explain the menu offers and help you collect your meal and return the dishes.

For more inform­a­tion, go to “Help for the Disabled” (Univer­sity of Siegen) or the “Central Student Advisory Service” (Univer­sity of Siegen) or “Studying with a Disab­ility” (Deutsches Studentenwerk).
