Food Services is committed to providing a wide variety of food options for students with mandatory meal plans.

Food allergies and celiac disease

Do you have a mandatory meal plan? Join the Dietary Restriction Program if you have celiac disease or one of the following allergies: 

  • Peanut or nut 

  • Gluten or wheat 

  • Dairy

  • Egg 

To prevent cross-contamination, your meals will be prepared in a separate room outside of the central kitchen with recipes and ingredients that have been screened by our dietitian. All our staff members have been trained to prevent cross-contamination at every food preparation step and their work is regularly monitored.
