Making it Easy to Eat Well
University Dining Services is committed to making it easy for our students, employees and the community to make healthy food choices on campus. A sustainable, healthy diet is one filled with fresh, flavorful, satisfying foods that fit your life. Our chefs are experts in making good-for-you food delicious and satisfying, and prepare food in ways that make eating well something to look forward to. They offer a wide variety of daily selections for every season and every taste. Lighter classics, wholesome and hearty comfort food, contemporary international cuisine, and fresh and flavorful specials.
Special Dietary Needs
For students and employees dining with food allergies, we offer the True Balance station in Eastway Café. This station serves lunch and dinner entrees and side dishes made without seven of the eight major allergens, in addition to gluten. Foods served at this station are prepared in separate cooking equipment and all chefs and managers have completed a food allergy training program.
Kent State University is honored to be the first Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) Certified dining location on a college campus in the U.S. Located in Prentice Hall, Prentice Café prides itself in being a safe-zone for students and employees with gluten intolerance and Celiac disease.
