Alcohol Policy

Saint Xavier University students are expected to abide by Illinois State laws concerning the drinking age. When some members and/or guests of a student group, club or organization are under the legal drinking age at an off-campus event, the members of the organization and their guests are responsible for conducting themselves in accordance with University policy and with state laws. Students are responsible for following the Alcohol Risk Management Procedures for the Student-Sponsored Events at which Alcohol is Served policy.

With the exception of Gilhooley’s Grande Saloon or University sponsored events, students and/or their guests may not possess, sell or consume alcoholic beverages on University property. Students may not purchase alcoholic beverages with University-approved student fees or with any other student funds that are collected and administered by a student organization or club. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action.

On rare occasions, students and their guests who are 21 years of age or older may apply for permission to possess or consume alcoholic beverages at an approved University function. Those who wish to obtain such permission must consult with the Office of the Dean of Students no later than two weeks prior to the date of the event. Permission will be granted only when a series of stringent precautionary and control measures have been arranged so that those attendees who are under 21 years of age will not be served alcoholic beverages. At no time may students and/or their guests sell or effect the commercial delivery of alcoholic beverages on University property.

Saint Xavier University assumes no responsibility for any liability incurred as the result of a department’s, club’s or organization’s violation of these rules or of any state or city law governing the use and consumption of alcoholic beverages.
