The database spotlights campuses that make food allergy accommodations, allowing students who may be facing special dietary needs to make those considerations part of their college search.

Penn College offers 13 of the 14 accommodations considered in the database. Those include posting ingredient information, developing cross-contact procedures, providing preordered meals and a gluten-friendly station, offering roommate accommodations, and having epinephrine available for use by campus emergency responders.
