Campus Guide: Stanford University

“Every dining hall on Stanford’s campus is diligent about making sure all allergen information is available for every meal and about answering questions when it is ambiguous. If you walk down University Ave. there are about a hundred different places to eat and all of them have allergy friendly menus. Most of the coffee shops on campus stay away from allergens all together, except dairy/gluten.” See Howard’s top allergy-friendly picks around the Stanford University campus!

Allergies: Peanuts and Milk
Dining Hall: I think all the dining halls do a great job of being allergy friendly, especially for major allergens.

Major: Computer Science
Post Graduation Plans: I have aspirations of being a Software Engineer working with artificial intelligence/machine learning technology.

Howard’s Tips:

✔️️ Make sure you get an EpiPen if you need one.

✔️️ Tell all your friends about your allergies, because they can be a first line of defense to make sure you don’t eat anything dangerous.

✔️️ If you have a peanut allergy, stay away from Thai food because they often cook everything with peanuts, but the additional seasoning makes it hard to smell it out.
