Alcoholic beverage service is available only in conjunction with food service and must be provided and served by catering staff. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed to be brought into the building.
Designated UW Conference Centers staff are required to be present at all times while alcohol is being provided.
Alcohol service should never be the main focus of a program, but rather an enhancement. Advertising of the event should not emphasize alcohol service.
For all student programs where some attendees will be underage as defined by law, wristbands are encouraged. Bartenders will band and serve only attendees who are of legal drinking age.
Sponsoring organizations are responsible for the actions of their guests and must comply with UW Conference Centers alcohol policies. Violations may result in the revocation of the organization’s facility use privileges.
UW Conference Centers will limit Charge Bars (open bar to program attendees) to two hours. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the manager of the respective center.
