Dietary Accommodations

We recognize that there are a variety of health conditions that may impact your food choices. We can work with you to identify the appropriate campus referrals for notification and assistance with dietary management throughout all aspects of your academic and campus life. 

Cornell Dining has taken many steps to be allergy-friendly and inclusive, including having a wide variety of options in each dining facility (including gluten-free options). The foods in the Residential Dining Halls are labeled for major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, nuts, peanuts, coconut, soy, shellfish, and sesame. They are also labeled for gluten. Other nutrition information is posted online. 

Based on your specific situation, Cornell Dining may need to work with you to make a personalized dietary plan to make sure your needs are met.  

Food Allergies, Intolerances, and Celiac Disease

  1. Complete the Food Allergy and Intolerance Questionnaire to share more regarding your particular needs.
  2. You will receive an email from Cornell Dining with dietary resources and guidance.
  3. Based on your situation, Cornell Dining may advise you to register with our office in order to develop an accommodation plan that meets your specific dietary needs.

Other Dietary Concerns

You can register with our office if you:

  • Have a dietary concern that is not an allergy or intolerance (for example, an eating disorder or a medically prescribed diet).
  • Are concerned about food exposure in your academic program or residence hall.
  • Encounter challenges with campus dining or with using your dining plan.

We can discuss your specific needs and next steps.
