Nutrition & Dietary Needs

Fresh Marketcafé chef talks with group of students about their food choices.

Nutrition and Dietary Needs

Remember that all of our chefs are willing to work with you to make a dining plan and meal options that meet your needs. Whether you have a gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, or anything else that requires some extra attention when it comes to food, there are a variety of food options that will work for you, and we encourage you to work with our chefs.

Eat Smart, Eat Well—UO Nutrition Calculator

Check out the UO Nutrition Calculator. With all of the amazing dining options and wide variety of foods, you may feel confused on how to pick healthy, nutritious meals. We understand that choosing what to eat and making sure you get enough variety on campus can seem like an overwhelming task, especially when all you want to do it eat Fresh’s Killer Mac and Cheese everyday! Luckily, we make it a priority to provide you with lots of healthy and nutritious options as well, so you don’t have to look too far or feel like you’re alone on this adventure!

Campus Nutritionist

Another great resource to tap into is with a licensed nutritionist at the University Health Center. You can make an appointment with them, and they are able to sit down with you and build a nutritional plan that fits your dietary need or goals.

Dietary Accommodation

If you know you will be coming to the University of Oregon with a food accomodation, the best practice is to contact us prior to your arrival so that we know they are coming and can build options with you before you even get here! The best person to contact before you arrive is Tom Driscoll, our Director of Food Services, at If you develop a food need while you are at the University of Oregon or didn’t contact Tom prior to your arrival, you can work with any of our head chef’s on-site to build a plan for that venue.

If you have a particular need related to a special accommodation, we would be happy to work to accommodate you. Please contact University Housing at 541- 346-4277 or email For disability-related requests please contact the Accessible Education Center at (541) 346-1155, or e-mail
