Daily menus for each dining hall are available online.  Students can review the ingredients listed in each recipe in advance of entering the dining hall.

  • Follow this link http://www.bu.edu/dining/menus-hours/, choose the menu and meal of interest, and select an item to view its nutrition information and ingredient list.
  • Recipes may change at any time, and online ingredient lists may not be up to date.  Ingredient substitutions can also occur.  Students should still speak with a chef to confirm the absence of an ingredient at the time of service.
  • Students should always locate a manager or chef for questions, not the server at the station in question. ***Items served outside of the GF Pantries and Stations have a high risk of cross contact or ingredient substitutions.  It is not advised that students with celiac disease or severe allergies consume them.
