Gluten-Free Options

The Gluten Freedom Station at the Zorn Dining Commons was designed to allow students with a gluten dietary restriction to dine comfortably in our Resident Dining Commons. This allows students to make safe choices while still having the freedom to dine throughout the DC. If you are unsure of the ingredients in an item available at the DC please ask a staff member for assistance.
