UConn Bakery


Dining Services operates an in-house bakery, "Not Just Desserts," that supplies freshly baked breads, pastries, and desserts to all areas of our operation. We also operate a gluten-free bakery on campus which supplies baked goods to our dining operations. Gluten-free items are available for purchase by the UConn community.

Gluten Free Bakery - In 2015 Dining Services opened the kitchen of the first-ever gluten-free bakery on a college/university campus! With this kitchen, we are able to supply all residential dining units, cafes, and University Catering, with fresh baked gluten-free products. Learn more about gluten-friendly dining on campus.

Products made at the UConn Bakery are made in an environment where peanuts and tree nuts, with the exception of coconut, are not used or handled. We cannot guarantee our bakery manufacturers follow the same protocol. This means that cross-contamination or cross-contact of peanuts and tree nuts could take place in the manufacturers' production facilities. If anyone is allergic to any type of nuts it would be advised to not eat any of the products from the UConn Bakery. This includes the Not Just Desserts line.
