Dining with Food Allergies

The Southern Dining team is passionate about serving students. From the general manager to front-line servers, they work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies or specific dietary needs.

Connecticut Hall offers a 'Gluten Sensitive' entrée station where all items served are prepared without gluten-containing ingredients. It is important to note that these entrees are prepared in the main kitchen therefore the risk of cross-contamination is not completely eliminated. Connecticut Hall also features the Simple Zone Pantry, a dedicated gluten-free, peanut and tree-nut-free area stocked with various snack and packaged meal options, breads, condiments, and more that are certified Gluten-Free. Simple Zone is a secured area to eliminate cross-contamination and keep our guests safe. If you require access to Simple Zone Pantry, please contact the dining team so they can have permission added to your campus ID card. 

In addition, dairy alternatives are also available throughout Connecticut Hall.

A team approach led by you, Southern Dining’s educated consumer, is the best preparation for a safe school year free of allergic reactions. If you have a food allergy or specific dietary concern, please contact our General Manager, Tony DeLuca at anthony.deluca@sodexo.com to help ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. Campus Dietitian Samantha Zajac, MS, RDN, CDN is also available for one-on-one sessions.
