The CROUS offers two options when it comes to lunch:
- University restaurants
To find out more, head to the Versailles CROUS website.
Your student card allows you to top up your Izly account and pay for CROUS services such as restaurants or cafeterias.
Options on offer
To tackle the health crisis, university restaurants have introduced takeaway options. You will find the list of CROUS locations offering takeaway meals on the Versailles CROUS website.
Following a rise in student poverty during the COVID-19 health crisis, the price for university restaurant meals has been reduced to €1 since September 2020 for scholarship students and since 1 January 2021 for all students identified as précarious by the CROUS.
The end of disposable bags and cutlery
Cutlery and bags will no longer be given out for free in cafeterias and restaurants so don't forget to bring your own! If you do forget, you will be able to buy them on site.
An alternative vegetarian option is available everyday in university restaurants. Social student meals on Mondays are also vegetarian as part of the Green Monday initiative.

University restaurants give you the possibility to eat a balanced meal at a reasonable price. You can choose 3 extras alongside your main dish, such as a starter, cheese, a dairy product or fruit. The queue can be long during peak hours (12am to 1pm). You should have at least 1 free hour to eat in university restaurants.
If you are in a hurry, you can always go to the cafeteria. Alongside sandwiches, you will find croque monsieurs, salads, croissants, yoghurts, fruit and more. Cafeterias are open throughout the day.
University restaurants are run by the CROUS. During the 2022/2023 academic year, the price of a standard meal is €3.30. As of 2020, university restaurants offer scholarship students and all students identified as précarious by the CROUS a €1 meal following the public health crisis.
To find out more: visit the Financial help section on the Université Paris-Saclay website.
Cafeterias on the other hand can be run by the CROUS or third-party companies, which explains the difference in price between them. In general, prices on campus are lower than those outside. For instance, on average a coffee costs €0.70.
Restaurants accept contact-free payment (student card which can be topped-up from your IZLY account, IZLY QR code, credit card) as well as cash.
