Allergen Friendly

The West Dining Center is NDSU's allergen-friendly dining center. All items served within the WDC are made without peanut or tree nut ingredients.

Clean Eats is a food station located within the WDC that provides entrees, side items and desserts that are free from the top eight allergens (milk, egg, soy, gluten, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts) and gluten.

*Please note, NDSU's centralized production bakery is located in the lower level of the West Dining Center. It uses tree nut and peanut ingredients, but every effort is made to avoid cross contact with the upper-level dining center.  

Tunnel Access

Located between the high-rise residence halls of Seim, Thompson, Sevrinson, Pavek, and Cater. All of these halls also have direct tunnel access to the WDC so residents do not have to brave the cold or change out of their slippers to grab a bite to eat.
