Registering Events With Alcohol

All student organizations are required to register social events with alcohol, regardless of whether the event will be held in an on-campus location (such as fraternity house), off-campus residence, or third-party venue. Registration helps student groups manage risk, since registered events require hosts to provide bartenders and security. Student group leaders should submit the registration materials and await response from AOD and/or an advisor (if applicable). Student groups should not publicize any event until they have received formal approval from AOD.
