It's getting better and better to dine gluten-free on this college campus,

When I first started eating gluten free my freshman year of college it was hard to find restaurants on campus [we have restaurant style instead of dining halls] that offered gluten free foods. However the school keeps getting better and better about the choices it offers. There is a build-your-own salad place called Core at two locations on campus. Although you have to be very particular about what you get due to cross contamination, they do a really good job at posting which dressings are gluten free [after I complained though haha!]. You can also get your vegetables put over brown rice which is good for us too! The italian place called 3 Cheese's offers gluten free pasta but it is entirely lacking. They make the pasta by running it under warm water so it is very hard and most of the sauces include gluten. I recommend making your own pasta in the dorm kitchen since it is way easier. The best place in my opinion is the build-your-own sandwich and bagel placed called On Deck Deli. Not only can you get lettuce wraps but the also have two different types of Gluten Free bread as well as Gluten Free Bagels. IQ Fresh is another place you can go and have your wrap turned into a salad. The Cellar, which is in the downstairs part of the student union, offers their food without a bun as well. The Mexican restaurant on campus, Cafe Senora also has corn tortillas that are gluten free, but this isn't the best restaurant in the world. Also, the markets on campus house several selections of gluten free foods and even the Annie's microwaveable gluten free meals. Another great place is Oy Vey with is a kosher deli on campus that has an assortment of salads, homemade soups and even a delicious salmon dish! By far the best place on campus is Fuel, which is located inside the Gym and has literally just opened. They offer an assortment of salads with several dressings that are gluten free, even a ranch! Besides those places everything else is relatively tricky and it is important that you check all ingredients and labels at the other restaurants. If you are looking for a gluten free friendly school then I highly suggest the University of Arizona because they are getting more and more friendly! And make sure you visit Fuel and Oy Vey since they are absolutely delicious! The only downturn however is that you basically have to live off of lettuce while you're here if you don't want to cook for yourself!
