Diet restrictions and allergies

Diet Restrictions

UW Food Services supports and accommodates dietary needs on campus! We have made without dairy, made without gluten, halal, vegan and vegetarian options in all our residence eateries.

If you’re not sure about whether a food or meal choice fits your dietary needs, just ask! Our staff are happy to answer your questions about any of our food options.

Food Allergies

Our key message to students coming to Waterloo with food allergies or serious dietary restrictions is to self-identify. Our Food Services team supports students living with food allergies, and are happy to help identify appropriate food choices. If you have an allergy or diet restriction, please let our staff know!

Our Commitment to all Students

We make every effort to minimize risk for students with identified allergies, and have safely housed students with dietary needs and allergies in our residence dining facilities in the past. All our staff also receive food-safe handling training and know the importance of food safety and preventing cross-contamination.

If you have any additional questions or concerns about dietary accommodation please get in touch, we are here to help!
