Your health and nutrition

Good, healthy food matters. Dining Services has a variety of programs in place to ensure we address all your dietary needs (including complete information about nutrition and allergens). Your health and wellness is our top priority.

Our sustainability practices

We are always working to minimize the university's impact on the environment by reducing waste and creating meals from fresh, locally-grown foods. In fact, many of our cafes, markets, cafeterias and dining halls are Green Spaces Certified.
