Dining & Catering Accommodations
Many students have special dietary needs and preferences; we are here to help you navigate your options within our dining facilities. From nutritional resources and education to our allergen-friendly stations, our goal is to provide you with meals that are safe and healthy in the most integrated setting appropriate to your needs.
Whether it’s advice on healthy eating in the dining facilities or concerns related to food allergies, our staff are here to support you.
Allergies and Disabilities on the Basis of Food
Springfield College recognizes the need for reasonable modifications for disabilities on the basis of food allergies, celiac disease, or other disabilities requiring a special diet (collectively, "food allergies").
If you are seeking an accommodation or reasonable modification relating to dining or catering services, including any accommodations related to your Springfield College meal plan, you can initiate that process by completing the Student Intake Form for Access and Accommodation requests online or by making an appointment with the Director of Non-discrimination Initiatives.
If you have documented food allergies, complete the Food Allergen Intake form and return to the Office of Non-discrimination Initiatives.
If you would like us to be able to speak to a family member or care provider regarding any needs or concerns related to your food allergy, please complete this Student Information Release Authorization form and return it to the Office of Non-discrimination Initiatives.
