Food Allergies & Special Dietary Needs

Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) makes every effort to accommodate the various dietary requirements of our guests. We are committed to stringent food safety measures and to educating our employees on the subject of food allergies and intolerances. HUDS makes every effort to label its food correctly. However, the number of meals served, and the number of items used, makes it impossible to guarantee the accuracy of its labeling.

It is incumbent on every individual with special dietary needs to make those needs known to the House dining hall manager. Self-reporting insures that all parties have access to the information necessary to keep you healthy and safe. It is also the responsibility of each student to check with their House dining hall managers concerning ingredients if any question exists. For further information, please speak with a member of the dining hall management.

Furthermore, the University requests that students who require dietary accommodations because of a documented disability/allergy must call the Accessible Education Office (AEO) at 617-496-8707 or email  To learn more about registering with AEO please visit their website at
