Welcome to Dining Services

We are excited to have you on campus and enjoy our array of delicious meals. In addition to our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, Boise River Café and the SouthFork Market a la carte styled dining hall, we have 16 locations across campus that include cafes, c-stores and fast casual food options. Supervisors are available at each location to answer your questions, all you have to do is ask.

We're Here to Help

Contact Us
Boise State students to engage in all aspects of health and well-being. A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) can guide you on the right path when it comes to balanced eating, proper weight and risk reduction for chronic diseases. What’s a RDN? You can find out more here about our RDN, Jessica Butler.

What about Allergies, Intolerances and Celiac Disease

We recognize various food preferences and allergies among a large campus population and are dedicated to meeting the nutritional needs of our students. Our goal is to provide students with the tools and support they need to utilize the dining halls safely and be active in the management of their food allergy or food-related medical condition on campus. We take into account each individual student’s personal dietary needs and make every effort to help transition students into their new life at Boise State University.

Important allergen disclaimer information can be found here.

Contact the onsite Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, to schedule a meeting with her and/or the dining managers and chefs.

Meal Plan Accommodations Process

In order to accommodate most dietary considerations, we:

• Offer vegan and vegetarian entrees at both dining halls

• Include a variety of vegan and vegetarian options across campus

• Have a made-without-gluten station at SouthFork Market

• Offer gluten-free bread and grains in both dining halls

• Include nutrition facts for all food items

• Offer ingredient lists for many foods

• Have a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, located in the Student Union Building, available to assist with dietary concerns


In order to process meal plan charges efficiently, we encourage accommodation requests be submitted by:

•August 31, 2018 for Fall semester

•January 28, 2019 for Spring semester

We accept accommodation requests as needed throughout the semester.

Exemptions will be granted based upon extreme medical reasons. Exemptions are not granted for dietary choices.

Please note that you have an obligation to pay for your meal plan until an exemption request is approved.

The Process

1. Fill out the Meal Plan Accommodation form.

2. A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) will contact the student after receiving their meal plan accommodation form.

3. A RDN will schedule a meeting between the student and the review panel, consisting of the Campus Dietitian, Dining Services Dietitian, Food Production Manager and/or Food Service Director. Dietary requirements will be reviewed and students will learn what specialized diets or other accommodations are available.

4. The review panel will discuss the individual case.

5. For students requesting an exemption, an RDN will send the decision to the

student via email.
