An Allergen- Friendly Space

Some students refer to it as a kitchen while others call it a pantry. The A+ Room (Allergy Friendly Plus No More Worries), located in Marycrest Residence Hall, is designed to be a safe space where students may acquire something to eat if they have a food allergy or intolerance.

Dining Services prefer that students eat meals in the dining facilities, however, we understand that sometimes students may need something quick and cannot wait to stop and ask staff members questions about how the food was prepared or what it may contain. The A+ Room is a way to get a quick meal or snack that meets specific dietary needs.


A+ Room Foods:

  • gluten-free items (bread, bagels, waffles)
  • dairy- free items (pizza, ice cream, yogurt) 
  • vegan- friendly items

These foods range from entrees, to packaged snacks & desserts, to beverages.

The A+ Room is equipped with a microwave, multiple toasters and a toaster oven for students to use to prevent cross- contamination from other foods.

The A+ Room is maintained by Marycrest's Dining staff as well as a dietetic student employed by Dining Services. Door access will need to be approved and granted by a Dining Services Administrative Dietitian, Ligia Lopes RD,LD
