Alcohol Policy

The right to acquire, possess, and consume alcoholic beverages is limited by laws that establish minimum drinking ages, drinking and driving laws, and so on. Miami University also has established policies on alcohol use on campus and by campus groups. It is incumbent on students, faculty, and staff to become knowledgeable regarding these policies, whether for individual decision making or for planning programs and events for a department or organization, including student organizations.

If alcoholic beverages are to be served, this must be communicated at the time of scheduling and approved by the Director of the Armstrong Student Center.  All alcoholic beverages must be purchased through Miami Catering.  Any alcohol provided by Miami Catering must be serviced by a member of their staff.

For alcoholic beverages to be served at an event in the Armstrong Student Center it must be approved by the Director. Student organizations may not charge alcohol to their university account and may not host events with alcohol in Armstrong Student Center.

For the full policy please refer to Chapter 4 of the Student Handbook.
