For students with a food allergy or intolerance purchasing Dining Plans at WVU, Dining Services will gladly make every effort to accommodate their dietary needs with a variety of fresh and nutritious alternatives.

Dining Services has outlined the following policies for students with allergies to ensure a healthy and safe dining experience during their time at WVU:

To aid our efforts in this process, and to gain access to these benefits, we request that students with allergies take the following measures:
1) Contact our Dietitian, Cami McMillen, using the form on the right, by phone at 304.293.4053, or by email at, to schedule a one-on-one meeting.
2) Provide a doctor’s note outlining the your allergies.
Failure to do these two things relieves Dining Services of any responsibility or liability related to any allergy-related injury or illness incurred by the student while dining in our facilities.

At this time, we have found this personal approach for students with food allergies to be the best way to ensure students receive a variety of nutritious and fresh dishes. Our chefs make sure that students with allergies receive the same quality dining experience as their peers. Feel free to contact our on-staff dietitian Cami McMillen with any questions regarding our policies or procedures on this subject.

Thank-You notes from parents regarding our allergy services:

“My family and I have been so amazed and pleased at how our son’s food allergies have been addressed by everyone we’ve talked to. We can’t thank you all enough and are satisfied with the help and communication WVU Dining Services have provided us as we get acclimated to his new home and settings. Honestly, it is with everyone’s help that I was finally able to sleep last night because I know that he is in good hands.”
