Yale Dining makes every effort to accommodate special requests for meals served on campus during reunions. Except for those classes having seated class dinners, all other meals are served buffet style with many options available including vegetarian/vegan and non-red meat.

Menu items prepared for reunions do not use peanuts or any type of tree nuts as direct ingredients. However, Yale Dining strongly advises that those who suffer from tree nut and peanut allergies avoid eating baked desserts while at Yale, as cross-contamination may occur in the bakery.

Contact the AYA at for more menu details, with any questions or concerns, or to discuss arrangements that can be made. Any special requests must be made in advance, before the May 10th deadline.
