If you have allergies:

1. Pay attention to entrée names

Dishes made with common allergens often have the allergen mentioned in the entrée name.

2. Establish a relationship with the chef

Simple conversations with the chef in your daily visit to the dining halls can make your dining experience a lot easier. The chef can go over ingredients used in recipes and explain how the meal was prepared.

3. Read Labels

Our chefs and managers will be happy to tour the kitchen with you, so you can view labels of the foods you’ll be eating.

4. When in doubt...

If there is ever a question about an item, we recommend you avoid eating it.
