The university has a policy that relates specifically to the serving and consumption of alcohol on campus. Event organizers are responsible for reviewing this policy and ensuring that their event complies with this policy. It is important to note that many members of the university community do not consume alcohol for a variety of reasons. Licensed events should not solely be about consuming alcohol. The main activities of the event should be open and inclusive to all individuals—whether or not they chose to consume alcohol at the event.
Event organizers should make sure to review and ensure that their event complies with UBC Policy #13: Serving and Consumption of Alcohol at University Facilities and Events. Depending on your type of event, there are specific forms that must be completed to book a space on campus and obtain a Special Occasion License.
