The Mensa Erlenring is centrally located in the Student house at Erlenring 5, close to the Phil-Fak (social science department), the University Library, and the main buildings of the university. This way the Mensa is easy for students and university employees to reach. The large dining hall seats more than 500 and is the central meeting point for Maburg students. Most popular are the 150 seating areas in the small dining area with a magnificent view of the castle and the old town.
