UMD recommends that students with severe food allergies or medically restricted diets who wish to live in campus housing choose an on-campus apartment as their preferred living arrangement. Students who live in campus apartments are not required to select a meal plan.
Students assigned to the residence halls are required to enroll in a meal plan. All foods served by UMD Dining Services are produced in a common kitchen where all top 8 allergens are present. While Dining Services makes every effort to avoid potential cross contact, we cannot guarantee any food is 100% allergen free.
UMD offers a dietitian who can provide assistance with understanding the campus dining options, and help develop customized plans for students on the meal plan. For more information please go to the Dining Services website.
