Healthy Eating

Providing you with healthy options is something your dining team proudly does every day. We help you select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help you make choices that fit your needs.

Food allergies, celiac disease, diabetes, or other special dietary needs
Eating healthy on campus
Vegan and vegetarian nutrition

Food Allergies

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. From our general manager to our front line servers, we work carefully to address food allergies, celiac diets, or other special dietary needs.

We want to meet one-on-one with anyone who has individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social.

Gluten-Free Options

The Gluten Freedom Station at the Zorn Dining Commons was designed to allow students with a gluten dietary restriction to dine comfortably in our Resident Dining Commons. This allows students to make safe choices while still having the freedom to dine throughout the DC. If you are unsure of the ingredients in an item available at the DC please ask a staff member for assistance.
