Catering Service


At the University of Calabria there are three main refectories on campus. To make use of this service, a personal magnetic card (given by the "Ufficio Mensa") is required. A special Committee of Inspection (including a dietist and a biologist) frequently controls the keeping of health regulations, menu standards, and staff. Menu varies and allows people to make also vegetarian choices. It usually consists of a first course (4 choices), a second course (4 choices), a side dish (2 choices), bread, a drink and fruit or dessert or yoghurt.




Refectories are closed in Summer (usually in August). They are also closed for short periods during Christmas and Easter time. For incoming students the cost of a meal is about 2.25 Euros. The opening hours are the following:
