Campus Dining and Allergies/Intolerances

Wesleyan University and Bon Appétit dining company understands the needs of food allergic students. The dining staff is able to safely and reasonably guide and accommodate students. Most food allergies and intolerances can be managed independently within the dining halls. We cannot accommodate dietary preferences, however, we can provide students with information around our menus, how to navigate the dining facilities, and the resources to assist in making the meal plan work.
