All- Sushi, Stir fry, Grill, Allergen-Free Station
All of them- salad bar, condiment station, and the dessert station.
All foods are labeled with the top 8 allergens plus corn and sesame. Additional information is always available upon request.
There is an established procedure for staff to follow if a student makes a special dietary request. Allergy-friendly meals are made separately from other meals and procedures are in place to prevent cross contamination. All stations in the dining hall have cross-contact procedures in place. Additionally, our allergen free station is always staffed and a new plate is required for every student who is served.
Accommodations can be made for all students with dietary needs. Pre-ordered meals will be held separately until they are picked up.
All Self-Serve Dining options have effective back-of-house procedures to lower the risk of cross contact. In the front-of-house, all items are labeled with allergens and each item has separate tongs. Additionally, students with allergies are encouraged to request items from backup containers if they are worried about cross-contact.
Our dining room staff is more than happy to get food from backup containers in the kitchen to lower the risk of cross-contact.
If a student needs to pre-order their meals, they must meet with the Registered Dietitian and/or Executive Chef to discuss their needs and come up with a plan.
We provide a gluten-free starch, protein, vegetables, and sauces at each meal. Our allergen-free station may contain corn, sesame, and/or coconut. Please inform the chef of additional allergies.
The top 8 allergens, avoiding cross contact, the signs of anaphylaxis (and what to do if someone is having a reaction), hidden sources of allergens.
Many of our employees have completed their ServSafe training as well as Allergen Awareness training. Additionally, all employees are required to attend the allergy training given by our Registered Dietitian each year.
As with any other accommodation requests, students must submit a written request and supporting documentation. With housing accommodations in particular there is a strong need to provide everything in a timely manner. Housing and Disability Services have a published deadline for initial reviews and placements. Anything sent in afterwards is dependent on remaining spaces available.
If dietary needs do not rise to the level of a disability students may work directly with dining services staff. Majority of accommodation requests from students with food allergies and celiac disease are to be placed in apartment style housing with kitchen access to either supplement or replace the University dining plan.
Registration and request forms are available from disability services advisors and on our website. Students must also submit supporting documentation.
