Special Diets

Ohio University Culinary Services provides exceptional service to the Ohio University community in support of its academic mission and vision. As part of this mission, we have developed a variety of informational icons which are in use at each of our Dining Courts/Halls to share important dietary information at a glance. When at a Dining Court/Hall, please look for the following icons:

Ohio University Dining Responsibilities Statement

Please be aware that all Ohio University culinary locations prepare items containing egg, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat. If you have a food allergy or other individual dietary need, please ask for a manager to assist you.


Students with severe food allergies or whose individual dietary needs require accommodation such as special menu planning or special food preparation should consult our dietitian, Angie Bohyer MAHE, RD, LD at 740-597-3143, for additional information or support.


Ohio University Culinary Services makes every attempt to deliver up to date nutrition and food-allergen information, but cannot guarantee an item that we prepare to be allergen-free. The information found on our nutrition cards and on our website is obtained from the latest USDA Standard Reference database, our vendors, or by individual packaging and is accurate to the best of our knowledge. Our staff is taught the severity of food allergies and/or individual dietary needs and is shown ways to minimize the possibility of cross-contact within our locations.


Please be advised that there are instances when certain ingredients may be substituted on the actual day of preparation. Commercial manufacturers may change their formulations without our knowledge or other factors may occur that are beyond our control. Additionally, there is always a possibility for cross-contact to occur. Due to these conditions, Ohio University Culinary Services cannot guarantee that any item prepared in our kitchen is totally free of a certain ingredient or allergen. Individuals with food-related dietary concerns should be aware of this risk and understand that Ohio University Culinary Services will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or items with which one may come into contact while eating at any Ohio University Culinary Services location.
