Despite BAföG and housing subsidies, there are students who live on the edge of the subsistence level. In cooperation between the General Students' Committee (AStA) and the Studierendenwerk, a free meal card (“Freitischkarte”) was developed to support them. This is intended to enable financially disadvantaged students in Greifswald, Neubrandenburg and Stralsund to have regular hot meals in the refectory. Deprived students can be supported with a 50 € credit on the Mensa card.
In order to prove that you are in need, you have to enclose the notification of housing allowance or, in exceptional cases, other meaningful documents with your application.
The application for a free meal card can be made at the social counselling service of the Studierendenwerk Greifswald.
