Healthy Eating Services for Students

Going to university means making changes—moving out, working part-time and doing your own washing, shopping and cooking. Being busy on a small budget can be stressful—there is often little time or money left for cooking. Saving time on cooking well is always a false economy, as we are what we eat, in terms of both our physical and mental well-being. Hence it is useful to learn about a balanced diet while studying.

We provide regular information about a balanced diet on Facebook and Instagram, as well as providing tasty and easy-to-make but healthy recipes.

Initiatives

Take part in our healthy eating events and initiatives and get into a balanced diet.

Once a semester and in cooperation with University Sports, IEL and Studierendenwerk, we organize a week of daily healthy meals in the University canteens, a nutrition quiz and sports activities.
The dates will be published here.

The nutrition coach provides the opportunity to keep a diary of and analyze what you eat and drink. You can incorporate your own recipes or gain inspiration for tasty—and healthy—new recipes.
