Healthy Suggestions

Looking for some healthier options on campus? UHD provides daily healthy suggestions that can be accessed from our online menu or from the nutrition information centers located in all UHD dining locations. Just look for this icon placed next to our menu listings to see our healthy picks for the day.

vegetarian and vegan

Vegetarian and Vegan

One of UHD's most important ongoing initiatives is to increase the amount of dining options available to vegetarian and vegan students. UHD dining locations currently offer vegetarian options at every meal and Cypress Bend now provides Meatless Monday dinners every week featuring exclusively vegetarian and meatless entrees. The Vegetarian Focus Group allows students to provide our staff with feedback on their dining experiences so that UHD can better suit their dietary needs and wants.

food allergy support team

Dining with Food Allergies

We are dedicated to providing support to students with food allergies through education, staff training, and reasonable accommodations in an effort to create a safe and inclusive collegiate dining experience.
