Managing Food Allergies and Dietary Restrictions

UMass Lowell

University Dining supports students who have food allergies and have other dietary restrictions by providing information and resources that are necessary for the students to make informed food choices in all of our dining locations. We work with our guests to provide reasonable arrangements so that students may participate in the college dining experience in a healthy way. We make every effort possible to provide helpful information to students with these restrictions. 

These resources include the signage containing nutrition and allergen information available at each station, MyFitnessPal app identifying recipes for each item served in the dining halls, and an accessible refrigerator stocked with prepackaged Gluten Free products, accompanied by a designated toaster and microwave.

Most importantly, we want our guests to feel comfortable and confident with their food options. Our team is well educated on precautions for preventing cross contamination and on the importance of following standardized recipes. However, if there is absolutely anything that you are unsure of, JUST ASK! Our trained and knowledgeable team will be more than willing to answer any of your dietary questions, address concerns, and accommodate requests for students who have allergies.
