Food Permits

EH&S has set-up a drop off and pick-up location for food permits at the Office of Student Life and Cultural Centers (OSLCC). If you are requesting a food permit, don't forget to allow at least two weeks to get your food permits approved, especially if you are intending to serve food from an off-campus restaurant or caterer. Make sure you get all the required documentation to ensure that your food permit can be approved well before your event is scheduled. Need more information, check out our Food Permit page or Contact Us for more information or questions.
