Residential dining support

Our award-winning Nutrition and Wellness team is here to provide support for your on-campus dining needs. We strive to cultivate an informed and inclusive campus dining community through everything we do, from offering food choices that meet a wide range of dietary needs and providing accurate food labeling to creating educational opportunities for you to learn about nutrition and cooking.

Online Menus

University Housing and Dining (UHD) offers a wide variety of dining options to our campus community. Our team of trained chefs, experienced dining managers, and registered dietitians work together to develop innovative and trendy menus that aim to meet the diverse lifestyle and dietary needs of our customers.

The menu offerings at each dining venue change daily, but students can stay aware of what’s available with our online dining hall menus. To access full ingredient listings and nutrition facts (calories, protein, sodium, etc.), simply click on the “Nutrition” tab near each menu category, then select any menu item for detailed information. Menu information can also be found in each dining location at the nutrition information centers or via our mobile friendly menu.

Identifying Food Allergens

With nutrition facts, ingredients and allergen information, our online menu information is especially helpful for students with medical conditions such as diabetes, celiac disease and food allergies.

University Housing and Dining identifies the eight major food allergens (milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, soy and wheat) in menu offerings at all of our dining venues. In addition, foods commonly avoided for religious or lifestyle preferences are also labeled. Be on the lookout for these icons on the digital menu boards above each serving line, as well as on the online menu and on prepackaged grab-and-go foods in the retail venues.
