To be admitted to a student canteen, you need to have a personal magnetic badge, which is issued as described below. If your canteen card is lost, stolen or damaged, you can get a copy from the relevant university or DSU Toscana office.
Your magnetic card will only be valid for the facilities of the area you have registered for, so, if you want to eat in a DSU Toscana canteen in some other city, please follow the instructions provided below, for each location.
Canteen cards are issued by DSU Toscana on production of an identity card and a certification that you are a regular university student. The canteen card is free. If re-issued when stolen or lost, it will cost 4.00 €, and such cost will increase every time the card is re-issued. To be admitted to Florence’s facilities if you are not a student of one of Florence’s universities, you will need to go to the Card Office in Florence with your record book and get a magnetic card in Florence.

A few months after their enrolment, new students receive a Cartapiù multiservice bankcard, which also gives them free admission to the students’ canteen. In the meantime, students who want to use the catering service can apply for a temporary card to the canteen’s card desk, showing their record book or certificate of enrolment along with their identity card. To be admitted to Pisa’s facilities if you are not a student of Pisa University, you will need to show your university card and/or fill in a special self-certification form that you can find at the canteen’s card desk.
