Chartwells at WPI is happy to accommodate students with food allergies and other dietary concerns.  A dedicated area at Morgan Pulse on Dining Marketplace (POD) called SPACE (Special Product Allergen Controlled Eating) provides a variety of non-allergenic foods in addition to a toaster and microwave oven used solely for gluten free foods to minimize cross-contamination.

Students wishing to utilize this area should contact Shavaun Cloran, Registered Dietitian, at scloran@wpi.edu or 508-831-5144 to arrange a team meeting with our Food Allergen Trained Staff, WPI Health services, Residential Services and Disability Services, as appropriate, to arrange accommodations (navigation of the dining hall per nutrition concern, special recipes etc.) suiting the student’s specific dietary needs.
