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 at the University of Connecticut 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, grab & go's as well as University Catering, with fresh baked gluten free products. Learn more about gluten-friendly dining on campus.

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.
