Gluten-Friendly Dining on Campus

Oklahoma State University Dining Services understands dietary needs with a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease and how it can affect your overall health and well-being. We offer a variety of menu items daily that naturally do not contain gluten, as well as specifically made gluten-free foods.

UDS understands that eating away from home with food allergies and intolerances can be very challenging and stressful. We are dedicated to providing support to students with food allergies through education, staff training and working with students with food allergies and intolerances.

UDS is currently working on updating a database to help students identify gluten and the eight major allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish, dairy and eggs) in our food options on campus.

The FDA requires labeling for the top eight allergens but does not require labeling for items that contain gluten. The FDA defines gluten-free food as containing less than 200 ppm of gluten. This makes tagging items containing gluten a challenge. We do our research but do not always have complete information.

Although UDS does serve foods that are labeled gluten-free, we are not a 100% gluten-free establishment. If you have a food allergy, Celiac disease, serious gluten intolerance or other medically necessary diet needs, please contact the UDS registered dietitian to discuss your options.

The Natural is located in North Dining, our newest dining facility on campus. It was designed to be an allergen-friendly and gluten-friendly concept with a dedicated kitchen to limit the chance of cross-contamination of common allergens and gluten. All menu items at The Natural are gluten-friendly. Vegan and vegetarian options are also offered here.
