Dietary Info

UWM makes every effort to identify ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction to those with food allergies. We identify allergens with the icons below. There is always a risk of contamination from customer interaction and production environment. There is also a possibility that the manufactures of the commercial food we use could change the formula or substitute a product at any time. Please see a manager for any specific dietary restrictions.

If eating at residential cafes, please submit the Allergy Request Form online by clicking here.
