Medical Dietary Accommodations

Before you start this application, it is important that you have already reviewed the Brandeis Dining Services website to see if your food allergies, intolerances, and/or other medical dietary needs can be standardly provided in the dining halls. The medical dietary accommodation request is for those with medically documented diagnosis/-es that require special dining accommodations or have medically prescribed diet plans for the treatment of a medical condition.

Our goal is to meet medical dietary needs through appropriate accommodations within Brandeis Dining Services. All on-campus students are required to enroll in a meal plan. In rare circumstances, exemptions from this policy are granted only for medically documented cases of dietary need.

Requesting MyZone Access

The medical dietary accommodation forms are also required for those who are requesting access to MyZone. MyZone is a dining services campus “pantry” located at Lower Usdan Dining Hall, where food items needed by students with documented medical/disability dietary needs (e.g. celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and other identified food intolerances, etc.) are stored and prepared with precautions against cross contact. This area is always to be free of tree nuts, peanuts, and gluten containing ingredients and products for the safety of our students.
