Eating on campus
Canteen (“Mensa”) On our campus, we have a canteen (“Mensa”) and a cafeteria.
The canteen offers a great variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals at a relatively low price. Both facilities are self-service, which implies that you have to get a tray and utensils, line-up for the respective food counters and pick your choice of food and drinks. Before leaving, please do not forget to place your tray on the conveyor belt or in the designated tray carts.
Opening hours for breakfast: Mon - Fri 7:00 - 10:30
Opening hours for lunch: Mon - Thu 11:00 - 13:45 / Fri 11:00 - 13:30
Located near building A, the cafeteria is a round building with a wooden terrace overlooking a little pond. It is the favorite student hangout during breaks between classes and is usually busy throughout the day. They offer all kinds of snacks, hot and cold drinks and some seasonal offers.
Opening hours: Mon - Thu 7:30 - 18:00 / Fri 7:30 - 14:00 / Sat 9:30 - 13:30
CampusCard and payment
Payment in the canteen and the cafeteria on campus is made with the CampusCard. The CampusCard can be charged with bills of EUR€5, 10, 20 and 50 at one of the charging machines on campus. In order to charge the card, first place your card on the machine. Your current balance will appear on the display. Now you can charge your card by inserting a bill into the machine. There are two charging machines for your CampusCard: one in front of the cafeteria in building A and one in front of the canteen. Payment by cash is not possible for students.
Next to the canteen, you find the pizzeria Angelo. Here you get typical Italian food like pizza, pasta and salads. The restaurant is open both for lunch and dinner. Payment is not made with the CampusCard but in cash.
Opening hours: Mon - Thu 11:00 - 24:00 / Fri 11:00 - 14:00
Recreation on Campus
Hof University of Applied Sciences and the University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration and Legal Affairs (FHVR) jointly provide their students with an excellent (and free-of-charge!) sports program. The sports hall offers a wide range of activities catering for all abilities. Expert tuition is given by fully qualified coaches. All the classes are fun and everyone is welcome. Outdoor sports fields (e.g. tennis or beach volleyball) can be used all week until 10 pm. The gymnasium can be divided into two separate halls. There are markings for badminton, basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer courts. We also have training programs like aerobics, dancing and gymnastics on offer. The booking schedule of the gymnasium is to be found in the entrance of the sports hall or online. The fitness room offers various opportunities to spice up your winter workout, e.g. crosstrainer, treadmill, rowing machines, and cycle machines for spinning workouts. You can also go for bodybuilding with barbells, pull-ups or any other of the numerous facilities offered. For further details on all clubs and recreational classes, please see the noticeboards in the sports hall

The Boom Party is quite special - a huge student party that is celebrated in the university building, taking place once a semester (normally in November and April). It is organized by the Students Union and definitely one of the highlights in Hof’s party scene. At the Boom party, you can chat with some of your professors and dance with your fellow students. We also have a Halloween party and a fancy dress party on campus. Also the annual “Glühweintrinken”, a party with lots of mulled wine, is worthwhile.
