Common Space Alcohol Addendum

Based on risk management review and in line with best practices and policies at peer institutions, no alcohol may be served or consumed in any campus venue unless compliance with MHC policies and state and federal laws can reasonably be assured. Alcohol service by students to students in Residence Hall common areas does not meet this standard and cannot be responsibly approved. Students seeking to host social events with alcohol service may do so by registering their event with the Office of Student Programs where provisions can be made for college-employed TIPS trained bartenders to offer beer and/or wine service to those of legal age with proper identification in a licensed campus facility.

If you have questions or concerns about this addendum, please contact the Office of Residential Life at 413-538-2088, or meet with the Office of Student Involvement in Blanchard 327.
