Food

ERASMUS+, CEEPUS students, students of bilateral programmes of the Ministry of Science and Education and EU students are entitled to a student identity card (X-card) which enables them to have government subsidised student meals at Student restaurants (Croatian - menza) and cafeterias all over Croatia. Non-EU students studying at FEBT as part of an institutional bilateral exchange agreement or as guest students (free-movers) are not entitled to a student X-card.

The price of a subsidized menu meal ranges from 4,6 to 6 HRK (0,63 - 0,82 €/meal) for a three-course meal (soup, main course, salad and dessert). The weekly allowance is 225,40 HRK.

Student X-card is not transferable, i.e. it can be used only by the cardholder. Any abuse will be sanctioned with suspension of the card!
