Alcoholic Beverages

  1. Subchapter 13-200 Alcoholic Beverages

    1. The use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited in or on University Facilities. The President of the University may waive this prohibition with respect to any event sponsored by The University of Texas System or the University. An event is sponsored if a budgeted office, department, or division of the University is responsible for organizing the event, inviting attendees and paying expenses related to the event, including the purchase of food and beverages. Meetings or events organized and presented by a registered student, faculty or staff organization are not events that qualify as events sponsored by the University.

    2. Subsection A does not apply to (1) areas that are licensed under state law for the sale and service of alcoholic beverages, (2) a Special Use Facility during use by a non-University individual, group, association or corporation for purposes permitted by Regents' Rules and Regulations, or (3) property, buildings or facilities that are occupied by a third party pursuant to a written lease or occupancy agreement that does not specifically exclude alcoholic beverages.

    3. All University rules and regulations and state laws relating to alcoholic beverages will be strictly enforced.

    4. Alcohol for University-sponsored events is to be purchased from and serviced by University Dining Services.

    5. An Alcoholic Beverage Request Form must be completed by a budgeted office, department or division of the University at least 5 working days prior to the event at which alcoholic beverages will be served. The request will be forwarded through University channels to the President for approval.

    6. Additional information is available in the Housing and University Center Office and from the Campus Activities Office.
