Special diets

Special diets cannot be accommodated at the dormitory. Some adjustments in the menu are made to suit the international makeup of the ISS student body. For example, halal meat will be served at least once a week. The only alternative to the standard menu will be plain vegetarian food that can include eggs and dairy products.

Dining Room Passes

All on-campus students will have a dining room sticker on the back of their ID card. The ID-card and sticker must be shown at every meal.
