Gluten-Free

Let’s eat gluten-free, feel-good food

Whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or you just like how GF foods make you feel, we’ve got you covered. You’ll find gluten-friendly options at all our dining venues. Scroll down to see our Gluten-Free Top Three.


Let’s enjoy fresh, flavorful foods that just happen to be gluten-free

Whenever we try new recipes, we ask ourselves two questions: Will it taste really, really good? And if so, why not make it with GF ingredients and equipment? Result: a host of amazing GF options, including campus favorites like Commons Marketplace grab-and-go chicken Caesar salad and the ramen noodle bar at Fresh at Carmichael.

Here are a few of the ways we take allergen concerns off your plate

An entire dining center that’s certified gluten-free

Fresh at Carmichael is the reinvention of one of our two largest dining venues. It’s 100% free of gluten, tree nuts, and peanuts.

Great-tasting, gluten-free favorites to go

No time for a sit-down meal? Head for Hodgdon Food-on-the-Run and grab a burrito or grain bowl made with fresh, GF ingredients.

A dining platform free of gluten and eight more

At Dewick’s ALL9FREE, the breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are full of tempting, gluten-free choices, all specially prepared in a separate kitchen.

Let’s keep cross-contact in check

When one food touches another, the proteins can mix. That’s cross-contact, and it could expose you to gluten and other allergens. We’ve taken a number of steps to keep that from happening. For example:

  • The charbroiler in Dewick is free of the top nine allergens, including gluten-containing ingredients
  • We arrange foods in an order that reduces the likelihood of cross-contact
  • In both Fresh at Carmichael and Dewick, we provide a dedicated gluten-free toaster, panini press, cutting board, and knife
  • No gluten of any kind is even allowed in the doors at Fresh at Carmichael and Carm2
