About the Mensa

The dining halls in Amberg and Weiden spoil you with daily changing dishes during the lecture period. Everyone, whether a student or not, can enjoy their lunch menu here. Whether you fancy vegetarian, hearty or light fare, between 11.00 and 13.30 (Amberg) or 14.00 (Weiden) you can put together the meal of your choice. Before the midday meal is served, snacks such as sandwiches, desserts such as pastries, cakes and coffee are also available. Try the quality of our refectories for yourself, enjoy!

Autoload method

Autoload is a cashless payment service.

As soon as your card balance falls below a predetermined amount, you can automatically top up your Mensa card during the payment process at the checkout. This amount will then be debited from your account by SEPA direct debit. To do this, you must give the Studentenwerk Oberfranken a SEPA direct debit mandate in advance.

  • Top up your Mensa card without cash.
  • No more waiting times at the top-up machine.
  • No more need to check the card balance.
  • If a card is lost, every student can log into the Autoload portal directly and around the clock to block the card.

You must register online once. You will receive the access data for this at the cash desk of your cafeteria or canteen. When registering, enter the IBAN and BIC of the account from which the amount to be revalued is to be debited. You also specify the necessary parameters for the revaluations.

Please change your password when you log in for the first time!

IMPORTANT: For security reasons, it is only possible to top up the card once a day using Autoload. If you lose your card, you can block it immediately via online access.

Online access also allows you to do this at any time:

  • change the amounts you have entered (top-up and minimum amount)
  • track the transactions you have made
  • block the card's payment function
  • track the transactions you have made
  • change your password

Further information is available at the cash desk or from your mensa team.
