Request to Serve Alcohol on University Premises


The method of operation and security plan for the service of alcoholic beverages on university premises requires approval from the Campus Life.  Specifically, the method of serving and security plan to assure all laws are followed and that visibly intoxicated participants are not served require approval from the Board. 

The exception to this policy exists if Three Pillars Catering is contracted to provide alcohol service.  Three Pillars holds the liquor license of the University and are equipped to assure  compliance.   

It is important for events organizers and sponsors to recognize that compliance with all alcohol beverage laws, campus regulations as well as participant behavior is their responsibility.


Approval for alcohol service will be granted only under the following conditions:

  1. That alcoholic beverages will not be sold by anyone without a license.  Under the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, the word "sale" means "any transfer, exchange or barter in any manner or by any means whatsoever for a consideration, and includes and means all sales made by any person, whether principal, proprietor, agent, servant or employee of any alcoholic beverage and/or a warehouse receipt pertaining thereto." 
    Event entrance charges are not allowed.
  2. That permission for the use of a facility has been obtained from the appropriate university office or official.
  3. That individuals under 21 years of age will not be served, be given, or possess alcoholic beverages at the event.
  4. That individuals who are intoxicated, or who are apparently or actually under the influence of alcohol, will not be served or given alcoholic beverages at the event.
  5. That the method of service, the alcoholic beverages to be served, and the amount of alcoholic beverages are specified.  A bartender must be identified.
  6. That there is a physical barrier containing the alcohol to assure no one under age has access.  A closed room is the most effective.
  7. That the supervisor(s) and methods of control are specified.
  8. That beer and wine are the only alcoholic beverages served.
  9. That sufficient non-alcoholic beverages and some types of food will also be available.
  10. That all state and university rules and regulations are complied with.  Particular attention should be paid to Article 4 of the University Rules and Regulations.  Other sections of these rules and regulations may also be applicable.  And,

  12. That those responsible understand that they are personally liable for the behavior of guests.
