Food Allergies

Dine SNHU is proud to provide you with healthy and delicious options, regardless of your dietary restrictions. There are accommodations for various food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities in our daily options in both resident dining hall and retail outlet locations on campus. We want to ensure you have safe and appealing dining options in an inclusive environment. 

Be sure to visit Simple, our allergen-friendly residential dining station where the recipes do not contain gluten and the FDA most-common allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, milk products, and eggs. Providing convenient and delicious options for you for lunch and dinner. 

When looking for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, be sure to look for the appropriate icons: V for vegetarian, VG for vegan, and NGI for no gluten ingredients. Menu boards are updated daily to display vegan and gluten-free items and meals. Always let your server know if you have any dietary restrictions so they can help customize your experience and keep your food safe. 

Menu items are prepared in a facility that uses these ingredients in the production of other ingredients. Although we take measures against this, the possibility of cross-contact with potential allergens does exist.

A team approach led by you is the best preparation for a safe school year. Please reach out to notify us of your allergies and keep us updated through-out your time at SNHU. If we do not hear from you, we believe that you are successfully navigating the dining locations.

Gluten-Free Options

Dine SNHU offers both Certified Gluten Free and made without gluten foods. MyZone is our residential dining "pantry" which offers gluten-free, peanut-free, and tree nut free items including, but not limited to breads, bagels, muffins, snacks, and desserts. A dedicated microwave and toaster are also available to allow students to be involved in their own allergen-safe meal preparation.
