Gluten-Free Dining

Do you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity? We’ve got you covered!

Tufts Dining has gluten-free options at all our dining facilities. Campus cafés, Kindlevan Café, and the Commons Marketplace also feature a packaged gluten-free sandwich, several salads, sushi, and gluten-free snacks. Carmichael and Dewick-MacPhie Dining Centers have the largest gluten-free selections, including special designated areas for gluten-free food.

Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center includes a gluten-free pantry with snacks and cereals —as well as a special refrigerator and freezer stocked with gluten-free breads and treats. Carmichael Dining Center also has a special refrigerator and freezer with gluten-free options, plus a separate station for cereals and snacks. Both dining centers label hot food to identify gluten-free options.

Here are just some of the special gluten-free foods you can find at Tufts Dining:

  • Gluten-free breads, wraps, English muffins, bagels,
    waffles, and hamburger buns
  • Gluten-free pizza
  • Gluten-free cereal, oatmeal, granola, pretzels, and bagel chips
  • Gluten-free cookies, brownies, coffee cake, muffins, and
    scones made at a local gluten-free bakery
  • Gluten-free pancakes are available at brunch every Sunday at both dining centers

Avoiding Cross-Contact

To protect your food from exposure to foods with gluten, we offer a special dedicated gluten-free toaster and panini press, cutting board, and knife in both Carmichael and Dewick-MacPhie Dining Centers. We also offer individual packs of cream cheese, margarine and jelly, as cross-contact with these items is common.

If cross-contact is a concern, please ask our staff for food from a warmer or directly from the kitchen when you believe cross-contact poses a risk.

If you’re concerned about cross-contact in any of our dining facilities, please ask to speak to a manager on duty or the person in charge. We're here to help!
