Food Allergies

Talk to Us about Your Food Allergies and Dietary Needs! 

Students with special dietary needs are expected to communicate their dietary restrictions and requirements to the Dining Team. Further information may be requested from the disability services office. Additional information about the disability services office can be found here.

We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator.
