Alcohol Service at Events


Under the authority of Chapter UWS 18 (01.9) and the conditions described in the UW-Platteville Alcohol and Other Drug Policies, organizations may request to have alcohol service as part of their events. Registered student organizations use a different approval process through the Pioneer Involvement Center. Visit the PIC on the first floor of the Markee.

General Alcohol Policies:

  • Official identification (driver's license, state-issued identification card, etc.) is required to verify that a person has attained the legal age for possessing and consuming alcohol. Identification must include a picture of the owner.
  • No one may provide alcohol to underage persons except as provided for under Wisconsin Statutes: Chapter 125
  • No one may serve alcohol to anyone bordering upon intoxication or already intoxicated.
    • The ultimate right to refuse service to any individual is reserved for university departments staffing the event, with authority assigned to the on-duty staff members.

By completing the Alcohol Request Form, the sponsoring organization or individual must accept financial responsibility for any theft or vandalism associated with the event. Completed request forms shall be emailed to Event Services will present the request to the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services for consideration and promptly notify the requester of the decision.

For all events where alcohol is approved:

  • Non-alcoholic beverages must be offered. The serving of non-salty food or snacks is required.
  • Unlimited consumption of alcohol for a fixed fee is not permitted, and no event shall ever include any form of a "drinking contest" or forced consumption of alcohol.
  • If the event time is longer than 3 hours or ends after 10:00 pm, alcohol beverage sales will close 60 minutes before the scheduled event end time.
