How does the menu work?

Sodexo Campus Dining Services follows a national menu, which is on a four week cycle. Here at the University of New Haven, we make changes to the national menu in order to accommodate the needs and requests of students, faculty, and staff. Please let us know if there are menu items you would like served in addition, or in place of, the national menu. Our Executive Chefs do their best to compose menus that will satisfy all of our dining guests.

Can I use Charger Cash?

Yes, all dining locations accept Dining Dollars, Charger Cash, credit cards, and cash.

What if I have a special dietary need or I am on a medically restricted diet?

Please email our Executive Chef mbucchieri@newhaven.edu with your concerns. Let Chef Melissa know whether you would like to set up an appointment to meet with her to discuss your dietary needs.

What kind of options do vegetarians and vegans have?

During lunch and dinner, we offer meals for both vegans and vegetarians. The salad bar allows guests to create their own salad with the vegetable and tofu toppings. The Hometown stations always have two options for vegetables and starch. Vegetarian pizzas and veggie burgers are always available at the Marketplace. All of our retail locations offer vegan and vegetarian options as well.
