Meals

Dietary Restrictions If you’ll be visiting campus this summer and have a food allergy, please submit our Food Allergy History Form so we can best meet your needs.

All items in our cafes are clearly marked with an allergen icon sticker on the label or on the corresponding menu board, which identify the top 9 allergens. Ingredients and specific dietary information can be found on the Dining website under menus. If you need information about a specific item, please inquire with a manager or cafe chef.

All of our dining locations offer a large variety of both vegetarian and vegan options. Look for these icons next to menu items.

Halal and Kosher Meals

We work closely with STLHalal to maintain an authentic halal food program. All chicken served in the DUC is Halal certified. Halal grab-n-go meals are also available in campus cafes and markets.

Kosher meals are available by pre-arrangement with Dining Services. There will be limited amounts of Kosher prepacks available at open dining locations.

Nutrition

We aim to create a dining environment that is supportive, comforting, and provides delicious food that nourishes the mind, body, and soul. There are a few key principles that can help you provide your body the necessary nutrients, energy, and satisfaction from food that you need and deserve! To set yourself up to do well throughout the day, try to incorporate these principles, understanding that flexibility with your food choices is an essential part of gentle nutrition.

1. There is no “one size fits all” nutrition plan, despite what you might have heard or read at one point or another. Your nutrition needs are unique to you.

2. Aim to incorporate regular meals and snacks. Eating regularly throughout the day can maintain your mental and physical energy.

3. Try to include a variety of foods at each meal and snack. Incorporating a variety of food groups including sources of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and fat provides complex nutrients which keeps us feeling satisfied and energized throughout the day.

A gentle nutrition plan can help you achieve your health goals without being “perfect” with your food choices. Try to remember that there is no such thing as bad foods, and we encourage you to remove this language from your vocabulary. Learn more about nutrition initiatives on campus here.

Sustainability

Dining Services supports Washington University in St. Louis’ strong commitment to sustainable practices. Our commitment is rooted in preparing flavorful food that is healthy, produced through practices that support farmers, nourishes the Washington University community and replenishes our shared natural resources for future generations. Some of our sustainability initiatives include:

1. Farm to Fork & Made from Scratch: We focus on creating made from scratch menu items from authentic ingredients. We have a commitment to supporting our local farming community by utilizing a minimum of 20% locally produced or grown products from over 25 local vendors located within 150 miles of our campus.

2. Powered by Biofuel: We convert fryer waste oil into biofuel, which powers our campus trucks.

3. No Antibiotics: Turkey and chicken are produced without routine use of antibiotics. Hamburgers are made with grass-fed beef from cows raised without antibiotics.

4. Reusable or Recyclable Dishes: We provide compostable/recyclable disposables and reusable dishes at dining locations.

5. 100% Fair Trade: Coffee in our cafes meets or exceeds Fair Trade Certified standards and requirements.

6. No Added Growth Hormones: Milk and yogurt are produced by cows never given artificial bovine growth hormones (rBGH). Hamburgers are made from cows raised without added hormones.

Vegan options

Bike Registration

Bike Registration

We STRONGLY recommend registering your bike with WashU and clearly displaying the registration shield on your bike in a visible manner. We also recommend using a Kryptonite U-lock with your bike, which are available for purchase at WUPD for $25.

Displaying a registration shield helps protect your bike from theft and facilitates the recovery of lost or stolen bikes. It also allows WashU to contact the owners of bikes that were impounded due to improper parking, like blocking pedestrian access.

The registration process is fast, easy and mobile-friendly!

  1. Visit Project529.com/washu (must include /washu) to register important details about your bike and select your delivery option.
  2. Once you get your registration sticker, complete your registration:1. Log into your 529 Garage account at project529.com or on the 529 Garage app to link your registration sticker to your account. Under “Your Garage”, click “Edit Bike” and scroll down to enter the 7-digit Shield ID found on the sticker.
  3. Carefully attach the sticker to your bike frame’s top tube or down tube in a visible manner. Once attached, the sticker cannot be removed without being destroyed.

Managing Your Registration & Reporting a Missing/Stolen Bike: Visit project529.com or use the 529 Garage app to edit your bike information, mark it missing/stolen to alert other users, transfer your bike’s registration to a new owner, and so much more.

If your bike is missing/stolen, file a police report and start an alert in your 529 Garage account. If you issue an alert, you can print or email your saved bike information directly to an officer or insurance agent. If it was stolen from campus, report it to WUPD (314-935-5555). If it was stolen somewhere off campus, report it to the appropriate police department.

If you would like more information on purchasing a bike lock, please contact Sergeant Geoff Himstedt at 314-935-5084​.
