The HCU Cafeteria at the new campus of the HafenCity University – the University of the Built Environment and Metropolitan Development (HCU) offers HCU students and employees a wide range of delicious food options, ranging from antipasti, meat, vegetarian and some vegan dishes, to fresh pastas and pizzas.

The unique atmosphere overlooking the Elbe makes it the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The HCU Cafeteria is barrier-free, tray trolleys are available for wheelchair users.

High chairs are available for children.

Cashless payments with the HCU chip card

Pay quickly and easily at all check-outs at the HCU cafeteria, as well as the HCU café, using your HCU chip card.

The HCU has given its staff  chip cards, known as Mifare DESfire cards. The staff can use these cards as ID, door openers (keys) and pay cards. In co-operation with the HCU, the Student Union has introduced the "chip card payment" function for HCU students and staff at the check-outs of the HCU cafeteria and café.

The chip card is available from the HCU, which is responsible for issuing, customising and loading the chip cards. You can top up the card at the chip-card recharging terminals inside/outside the relevant cafeteria, as well as at the check-outs. The card’s remaining credit can also be paid out at the check-out. If your chip card gets lost or stolen, please report this to the HCU. If you come to us with a letter from the HCU, existing credit is paid out beforehand or transferred to a new card.
