Food Allergies & Special Diets

UC's Food Services is committed to providing delicious and nutritious options for students with special dietary needs. We encourage you to visit Campus Dish to view menus ahead of time. This is one the best tools for students with special diets or allergies because it provides insight to what is being served at each location and can help with planning and decision making.

If you have a severe food allergy, intolerance, or special dietary accommodation, please consult with the location Manager or Registered Dietitian.


Vegan & Vegetarian

We strive to provide students with plant-forward options in our dining centers. At CenterCourt and MarketPointe, we have vegan stations open daily that serve an entrée, side, vegetable, and dessert made without any meat or animal bi-products.

We also provide plant - based proteins on our salad bars at all locations- this includes: black beans, chickpeas, edamame, quinoa and hummus. Veggie burgers are available at every grill station upon request.

Gluten Free

Though none of our facilities are certified gluten-free facilities, we do offer a variety of food made without gluten. Every pizza station offers gluten-free dough upon request. Deli stations all offer gluten-free bread, and pasta stations at CenterCourt and MarketPointe both have gluten-free pasta upon request, as well.

True Balance Allergy Free

Do you have a food allergy? Our True Balance station can help!

The True Balance station is designed to assist students with food allergies to make safe and healthy choices while dining on campus.

All of the foods in this station are made without 7 of the top 8 most common food allergens, including wheat, soy, eggs, milk, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. Meals served at the True Balance station are prepared in an allergen-free area of the kitchen, including secluded storage areas to eliminate chance of cross-contact.

Our goal is to provide students with an opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal regardless of their food allergy. You can find our True Balance station in On the Green.
