Alternate Diets


Ask Before You Eat - Logo-01


At Queen’s University, we take allergies and special diets very seriously. We support students who have allergies and dietary restrictions by providing information and knowledge that is essential for students to make informed choices while dining on campus and participating in the university experience. We encourage all students to “Ask Before They Eat”. For more information, please visit our Allergies page.


Do you have a special diet that you need to follow? We can help you.

We know it can be hard to manage a special diet in a new place – we’re here to help you. If you have yet to contact Hospitality Services about your special diet, or if you have but you continue to have concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 613-533-2953 or by emailing

Our services include:

  • Confidential consultation with a Hospitality Services representative
  • Access to a dining hall chef or manager to help you make safe choices
  • On-going support and guidance throughout the school year

When eating in the dining halls, please feel free to ask our staff members for assistance.

If you are not new to campus, but you would still like a consultation, please contact us as soon as possible to arrange a meeting with our team:
