Responsible Use of Alcohol Policy
The Responsible Use of Alcohol in Residential Living Policy allows students of legal drinking age to attain Responsible User status and possess a limited amount of beer or wine in their living space. Hard alcohol is not permitted anywhere on campus.
The Responsible Use of Alcohol in Residential Living Policy applies to students who are 21 years or older and reside in The Apartments@525, 555 Huntington Avenue, 610 Huntington Avenue, Louis Prang and Vancouver Apartments.
- Students under the age of 21 cannot consume alcohol no matter where they reside on campus.
- No alcohol is allowed in Baker Hall, Evans Way Hall or Tudbury Hall at any time.
In suites/apartments, the students who are 21 years or older and meet the responsible user criteria are permitted to have only one of the following:
- Six (6) 12 oz. beers
- Six (6) prepackaged/premeasured 12 oz. beverages such as “Mikes Hard Lemonade”
- One (1) 1.5-liter bottle of wine

- The Responsible User Certificate will have the names of only the Responsible Users residing in a suite/apartment and must be posted on the inside of the suite/apartment door at all times.
- Violations of the alcohol policy that occur in a suite or apartment where there are Responsible Users, all Responsible User certificates will be confiscated and the Responsible Users in that suite will immediately lose that status.
