Gluten Intolerance

Student's Summary Assessment:

College Dining:


Surrounding Area:


Rationale for Grades Given

They offer a few gluten-free options but I am limited to the same three meals everyday.

I am always able to eat something, but it is usually a sandwich on gluten free bread.

Details About this Student's Food Restrictions

How many years ago were you diagnosed with food allergies or celiac disease?


If you indicated celiac or gluten intolerance, how sensitive are you to gluten?

Very: React to small amounts

Add details to help us better understand your food restrictions (e.g. sensitivity level, potential reaction, need for EPI pen)

Ingesting even a small amount of gluten results in nausea, bloating, and diarrhea.

Details About this Student's College Dining Experience

Does your college handle food restrictions as you expected when you decided to attend?

Mostly what I expected

Have you had a reation from eating in your dining hall?


If Yes, describe each incident and how your school responded

Did you register your food restriction with the disabilities office? If yes, describe

We informed the office of disabilities prior to arriving at school but they were unable to provide accommodations.

Are there resources to help with nutritious, safe dining (e.g. dietician)? If yes, describe

Not really

If you were in charge of dining, what would you change? Would your school be open to suggestions?

Because my dining experience is food court style. I would advocate for a booth solely for allergy friendly foods. I think the biggest issue is money.

Describe your biggest challenge managing your food restrictions at college and how you deal with it

Because my options are so limited, I have to prioritize gluten-free over healthy. I have experienced weight gain and I feel like I don’t have enough to choose from that is healthy.
