Yes

A brief description of the vegan dining program:

There are vegan options available on campus during every meal at every dining facility. At the main dining area, the self service ares offer salad items for the diners to design their own salad with, and customized products are available from the served food areas. Vegan options are available in each dining area. The staff will be more than happy to be consulted regarding the individual diner's food needs (allergies, restrictions, etc) and customize a meal to fit his or her needs.

Vegan labels indicate which food is classified as vegan so eaters are comfortable knowing the ingredients in their food. An online vegan menu is also available for students and staff to know which food options are vegan in the main dining area.
