How to Contact Us and Send Feedback

Campus Dining Contact Information:

You can also send us feedback through our Txt and Tell program. Beginning in September, we will have codes available for all of the dining halls and select retail locations.



Menus can be found at menus.princeton.edu. There you can find allergen information and apply filters to see what your best food options might be for that meal.


Food Allergies and Dietary Restrictions

A manager or chef is always available to answer questions you may have while you are in the dining halls. dining.princeton.edu/where-eat

We also have a registered dietitian you can speak with:
