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.


Service Organization

The Real Estate and Facilities Service is responsible for the overall running of the canteens and bars. The service is outsourced to a catering company, Villa Viviani.

Further details about the service provided by Villa Viviani can be found here.

A survey was launched in March 2014 to assess the level of canteen and bar services at the EUI, and the results are available for consultation. 

In order to give answers to most of the questions raised in the survey, a section of Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) has been published on this website.

Comments about the canteens & coffee bars can be sent by mail to the Restaurant Committee or to Ana Rosa Del Castillo, ext. 2407, or by filling in the Restaurant Feedback Form
