Gluten Free at New York University (NYU),

NYU is definitely improving their gluten free options as more and more changes are coming to the campus. NYU's dining services are provided by Aramark and because of that, they have access to a fair amount of gluten free products to provide in the dining halls. The significant issue that I was faced with regularly was with lack of consistency between dining halls and even between chefs in a single hall. The dining services workers are often not trained in how to avoid cross contamination, so it is important to be paying attention while your sandwich/burger/wrap etc. is being prepared so that it is not contaminated. My suggestion for any new students or newly diagnosed students is to first get registered with the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities. This registration will allow you to request placement in a residence hall that has kitchens in each apartment (really only an issue for first year students). Most, if not all, upper class residence halls do have kitchens, so there's no need to worry about being relegated to a hall you don't want. The best part about having the halls with the kitchens is that you'll have an oven, stovetop, refrigerator, freezer, and you can bring a toaster/toaster oven (students in halls without kitchens cannot bring these items due to the possibility of a fire hazard). Then I suggest finding out which dining hall is in your building and setting up a meeting with the manager of that hall. NYU has a number of dining halls so it's important to make yourself known at whatever hall you plan on going to most often and to get to know the staff so they can prepare the food for you quickly and carefully. The managers are all very nice and willing to take suggestions about what items you would like provided in the hall and are willing to take feedback on products they're trying out. Two notable dining halls to check out for their gluten free items are Third North Dining Hall (lots of gluten-free breads and wraps!) and Kimmel (AMAZING gluten-free pizza, pasta, and sandwiches, which are prepared separately). Another big plus, is that outside of the NYU's own dining halls, there are tons and tons of gluten free options in NYC, around campus, so you're never going to have to worry about a lack of options.
