Alcoholic Beverages

Off-Campus

Students traveling or attending events related to their didactic or clinical education are viewed as representatives of the institution and are expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct. The abuse of alcoholic beverages on such occasions will be considered a violation of policy. Failure to comply with this policy will constitute grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion from the school.

On-Campus

In accordance with the The University of Texas System Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents, no alcoholic beverages are allowed on campus without special approval.

The University of Texas System Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents

Rule 80102: Alcoholic Beverages
Sec. 1 Prohibition

The use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited on property and in buildings owned or controlled by The University of Texas System or any of the institutions. However, the Chancellor of the UT System or the president of an institution may waive this prohibition with respect to any event sponsored by the UT System or any of the institutions. An event is sponsored if a budgeted office, department, or division of the UT System or any of the institutions is responsible for organizing the event, inviting attendees, and paying expenses related to the event, except that such an event is considered to be sponsored even if an outside entity pays for the food and beverages at the event. Meetings or events organized and presented by registered faculty, staff, or student organizations are not events sponsored by the UT System or any of the institutions.

Section 1 immediately above does not apply to areas that are licensed under State law for the sale and service of alcoholic beverages, to a Special Use Facility during use by a noninstitutional individual, group, association, or corporation for purposes permitted by the Regents' Rules and Regulations Series 80102, or to 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.
