Dietary Accommodations

Food Allergy Notice: Please feel free to speak with our staff if you have questions regarding food allergens (such as allergies or intolerance to dairy, egg, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, soy). Prepared foods in our dining facilities may not be allergen free, even if they are made initially with products that don’t contain the allergen.  

Dietary Accommodations: We accomodate a wide range of dietary accommodations in the Special Diet Kitchen at Union Drive Marketplace. To connect with us and get registered to eat in the Special Diet Kitchen, follow the steps below: 

Step #1: Complete the Housing and Dining Accommodation Request Form and Risk Waiver. Submit these two forms to our registered dietitian, Lisa Nolting, via email (lnolting@iastate.edu) or mail (1215 Friley Hall, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011).

Step #2: Contact Student Disability Resources (SDR) by phone or via email regarding your request. They will ask you to provide documentation from a qualified medical provider to assist in determining how to proceed with your dietary accommodation request. 

Step #3: SDR staff will review the documentation provided by your medical provider, and they will be in contact with ISU Dining and/or Department of Residence as soon as appropriate. We will be in touch to discuss "next steps" within two weeks of the receipt of your documentation.
