Lafayette Dining has developed a range of programs and tools to address the diverse dietary needs of our campus community. Throughout our dining locations on campus, we ensure that your food is properly handled, clearly labeled, and prepared with your satisfaction and safety in mind.

As passionate foodies, we are committed to offering everyone, regardless of their allergies or dietary restrictions, a robust and delicious dining experience at Lafayette College. We encourage students and guests to connect with our team at so we can learn about your needs and preferences in order to offer guidance on making the most of each visit.

Additionally, if you have a food allergy, please contact Lafayette College Disability Services and follow their procedures for appropriate documentation.


Food Allergy Training

We understand how challenging dining with dietary needs can be and work hard to meet all students’ needs. All food handlers working for Lafayette Dining have completed a component of the AllerTrain allergen awareness education program.


Food Labeling

All items served in our dining halls are clearly labeled via countertop menu signs with icons representing 9 top allergens and indicating whether a dish is gluten-friendly, vegan, or vegetarian. Gluten-friendly items are free of direct gluten-containing ingredients, and while we do our best to eliminate cross-contact wherever possible, these items have been prepared in our kitchens which do process other items containing gluten ingredients.



Inspired Eats

Both Marquis Dining Hall and Upper Farinon Dining Hall feature our Inspired Eats as a go-to destination for guests with personal dietary needs or those looking for simply-prepared but flavorful menu components. Every recipe at Inspired Eats has been consciously created by our culinary team to be made without all of the “Big 9” allergens.


Allergens and Catering

With advance notice, our catering department can provide individually crafted meals to fulfill specific dietary needs. Contact us to discuss your needs. We are will be happy to discuss our gluten and allergen friendly offerings.

Nutrition Information

Nutrition details and common allergen information for many of our core menu items and features can be found on our NetNutrition website. Variations can be expected due to seasonal influences, minor differences in product preparation, or ingredient substitutions so we always encourage speaking with a manager or Chef with questions or concerns.
