Customers who are not enrolled at a German university and are not entitled to pay the student price use the Guest Card for paying. In the FH dining halls the card is sold at the checkouts, in the RWTH dining halls they are available at the card terminals.

Remaining balances are refunded at the Infopoint, in Mensa Vita (coffeebar) and in Mensa Jülich.

When paying with the Guest Card a guest fee of €1,50 is charged. If you want to eat in a dining hall with a whole group you can order “Mensamünzen”. With this coin system you receive an invoice after your visit.
