Interactive Menus

Counting your calories or minding your macros? Digital screens in the Lister dining hall and Peter Lougheed Hall display interactive menus—complete with information about nutrition and allergens. Or, check out our menus online and click on the location of your choice to see a complete list of ingredients for each dish.

Dietary Restrictions

Do you have a food allergy or intolerance, or an important dietary preference? Look for the above labels (or talk to the manager on duty) in UAlberta's dining locations to see which menu items suit your needs. Dining Services has many options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and halal diets; we also have options for those who prefer locally grown or sustainable products. To learn more about how Dining Services can accommodate your dietary restrictions, contact our Dining Services managers to ask questions or to make an appointment to walk through our food stations with our executive chef.

Ask a Dietitian

Do you have specific questions about allergens or other special dietary needs? Our dietitian can help! Email with the subject "Ask a Dietitian" or send your question to us on social media with the hashtag #askDSdietitian.

Food Safety

Dining Services takes health and safety very seriously. We monitor and log cooking, reheating and cooling temperatures. We have strict protocol in place to keep our food preparation areas and food service areas clean. If you have health or safety concerns about one of our locations, please contact us immediately at When an incident is reported, management informs the public health inspector, conducts a food safety audit and follows up with the results.
