Permission to Serve Alcohol on Campus

Departments must obtain prior approval for any event on University grounds where alcohol will be served. The President has delegated this authority to the Provost and vice presidents.

Event organizers must complete a Permission to Serve Alcohol form and obtain approval by the appropriate vice president at least 30 business days before the event.

In addition to this, security must be present at any event where alcohol is served. Event organizers must also complete a Police/Security Agreement 30 business days before the event. They should contact Campus Police to make appropriate arrangements. Campus Police requires a copy of both the Permission to Serve Alcohol form and the Police/Security Agreement. Costs for security will be the responsibility of the sponsoring individual, department, or organization. Fees must be paid prior to the start of the event.

If alcohol will be sold at the event, event organizers must present the University with a valid Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission permit at least five business days before the event.

An underage student who is not accompanied by his or her parent cannot attend an event where alcohol is served.
