Housing accommodations are determined by Student Disability Services (SDS) based upon disability documentation and available housing options. For policies and procedures regarding housing, please visit our Housing Accommodations Procedures page.
SDS Assists students with severe food allergies and special dietary restrictions by:
- Providing the appropriate referral in Cornell Dining and Retail Services (DRS) to assist the student with identifying food ingredients in specific DRS venues and substituting menu items to ensure proper nutrition (when necessary).
- Developing a Food Allergy Management Plan. This planning process will include how to notify relevant faculty, staff and students of your condition and the potential for a medical emergency.
Cornell Dining offers a variety of foods that are gluten free. Students who require gluten-free diets do not need to register with SDS if the only needed accommodations pertain to dining.
For more information on managing food allergies and dietary restrictions on campus, please visit our Dietary Accommodations page.
