Residence Dining

In Rez Dining, our students are so much more to us than simply "guests", you quickly become part of our family. We look forward to seeing you each day and are excited to offer you a diverse menu that you are sure to enjoy. For your convenience, simply contact us here to pass on any questions, comments or suggestions that you might have.

Attention Athletes!

For your convenience, our dining halls are open 7:00 am - 7:00 pm. However, should your game and practice schedules not allow you sufficient time to eat, meet with your Dining Hall Unit Manager to discuss alternate arrangements.

You can opt to visit the dining halls offering evening services, or order in home delivery.

Accommodating Food Allergies

Over the years, Residence Dining has accommodated countless students living in residence with food allergies and/or intolerances. A very extensive six-week residence menu cycle ensures that all students can have their nutritional needs met. Daily menus, which are posted online as well as at the entry to each dining room, list major ingredients used in all our hot entrees, soups and side dishes.

If you have a food sensitivity, we encourage you to review the menus carefully and request additional information as needed. We are more than willing to help you make menu selections that are compatible with your personal health profile.

For students with severe allergies, it is strongly recommended that you introduce yourself to the Unit Manager in your residence. The Unit Manager will also introduce you to the Unit Supervisor and Unit Chef.

For the first few weeks, it is imperative that you work closely with our residence dining staff. They have been trained in safe food handling and know the importance of food safety in the prevention of cross-contamination as well as the possible complications that can arise when a food allergen is consumed by someone with an allergy.

Our Nutrition Manager, Anne Zok, is also available to help especially during these potentially challenging first few weeks of school. Submitting a personal information sheeton yourself, outlining the details of the food allergy, also helps all our staff identify those who may require additional assistance in making healthy food choices. This Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan Form pdf file, once completed, these sheets are posted in the kitchen area only and are out of public view.

Please visit our Nutrition Information Services for more information about Food Allergies.

Special Diets for Religious Observance

If you prefer to be selective about dietary choices for religious reasons, you have a number of options available to you in the residence dining experience. It's important for you to know what's in the food you eat and how it has been prepared.

We make it easy by providing ingredient listings of all the menu items being served. You can identify these ingredients to help make more informed food choices. Complete menu listings are available at Menu Cycle to assist you in making your dining decisions prior to meal times.

Lunch and dinner entree selections always include a minimum of one hot vegetarian option. Upon request, frozen pre-packaged entrees will be available for students with special dietary requirements associated with religious observances.

While we do not maintain full facilities for preparation of religious meals, every effort is made to accommodate students with religious observances or vegetarian preferences.

For more information, contact your Unit Manager/Chef.
