Food Allergy Accommodations
College Housing and UChicago Dining support students who have one or more food allergies by providing the necessary information for the student to make informed food choices in the four residential dining commons: Baker, Bartlett, Cathey, and Woodlawn.
We work together to provide reasonable arrangements, as outlined in the UChicago Dining Allergy Guide (PDF), so that each student may participate in the residential dining experience as much as is feasible.
We recognize that students with food allergies experience a more limited diet than those who do not have food allergies, and are required to exert more time and effort in managing their diet than others. Every effort is made to provide helpful information to students who are managing food allergies.
We have developed and standardized a process to assist students with food allergies and other dietary medical concerns. This process takes into account each student’s particular dietary needs. The goal of this process is to provide students with serious food allergies the tools that they need to be active in the management of their allergy or food-related medical condition within the residential dining program in ways that are developmentally appropriate for College students as they transition into adulthood.
