University dining

The Versailles CROUS (regional student services organization) offers two dining options:

Canteens (restaurants universitaires or RU)
The canteens are open from 11.30am to 1.30pm. You pay for your meal with a "ticket restaurant", sold in packs of 10 (2005/2006 price = €27). Canteens are located in the Faculty of Science (Versailles), Faculty of Social Sciences (Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines), and the Vélizy Institute of Technology.
