Dietary Needs Disability Accommodations

The Medical Disability Dietary Accommodations Request is for students with a documented medical diagnosis that require a modified diet that cannot be provided through Liberty Dining Services.  Liberty University requires all students living on campus to purchase a University Meal Plan in connection with financial check-in.  In rare circumstances, exemptions from this policy are made for a documented disability which cannot be reasonably accommodated within the Liberty Dining Services system in some way.

Before you start the dietary accommodations request process, it is important for you to review the Liberty Dining Services/Sodexo My Way website to see if your food allergies, intolerances, and/or medical dietary needs can be standardly providing by Liberty Dining Services.

  • Additional Documentation – Additional documentation may be requested
  • Preferences and Choices – Accommodations are made solely on the basis of documented medical conditions and not for preferences or the cost of meal plans
