Methods and means of payment

Payments in EUI canteen and bar facilities can be made by cash or using your EUI card, that can be topped up at any cash desk across the Campus.

Credit on your EUI card will be left as long as you maintain your EUI affiliation: please note that credit available on your card cannot be redeemed for cash, but only in food and drinks. 

We remind you that any credit left on your EUI card after your affiliation expires will automatically be reset and it will not be possible to claim for any reimbursements. We therefore recommend to make sure you spend your credit before leaving the EUI.


Please note:

Starting 1 September 2019 canteen prices have been indexed according to users' income into three different categories on the basis of the solidarity redistribution principle, as illustrated in the table below:

 prezzi mensa

 The categories correspond to the following EUI statuses/grades:

 Categories for canteen prices

Please note that the category is associated to the EUI ID CARD: presenting the card upon payment is therefore essential, otherwise the maximum price (C category) will have to be charged.

We hereby confirm that all personal data are treated and processed in compliance with the rules and principles of the Institute’s Data Protection Policy.
