Medical Dietary Accommodations

Before you start this application, it is important that you have already reviewed the Brandeis Hospitality 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 Hospitality. 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 Access to The Pantry

The medical dietary accommodation forms are also required for those who are requesting access to The Pantry.

The Pantry is located at the entrance of Usdan Kitchen providing staple items for students with documented medical/disability dietary needs who follow a gluten-free diet and/or avoid peanuts or tree nuts. This area is always to be free of tree nuts, peanuts, and gluten containing ingredients and products for the safety of our students. For more information about gaining access, contact the registered dietitian, Jessie Curran (jcurran@brandeis.edu).
