Specialty / Medically Necessitated Diets

Specialty Diets

Whether your special diet is medically necessitated or a cultural/lifestyle choice, you have access to an on-site Registered Dietitian who can assist you in your daily meal planning needs. Please feel free to contact HDHdietitian@ucsd.edu to request additional information if you need assistance with a specialty diet.

Medically Necessitated Diets

Dining Services is able to accommodate individuals that require a specialized diet, such as those with food allergies, intolerances, and specific medical diagnoses such as diabetes, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, etc. Individuals with medical conditions that require specific dietary accommodations should first contact the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) as early as possible at osd.ucsd.edu. Once registered with OSD, our Registered Dietitian will meet with you to set up an individualized plan, assuring your nutritional needs are met. Questions about this process can be directed to HDHdietitian@ucsd.edu.

Cultural & Lifestyle Dietary Choices

Dining Services provides nutritional information reflective of the ingredients used when preparing our products—this is designed to guide you in making the best choices for you. If you have questions you are encouraged to contact our culinary department directly at vvargus@ucsd.edu
