Alcohol Policy - Overview
Residents and visitors must abide by Wisconsin State laws referring to alcohol use and possession. It is unlawful for any person under the age of 21 to purchase, consume or possess any alcoholic beverage. The possession, consumption, or presence of alcohol is prohibited at all times in residence hall rooms if each of the residents assigned to live in the room is under the age of 21. All residents and involved students may be subject to disciplinary or judicial follow up, including fines. This restriction does not apply if at least one of the room's residents is of legal age.
Loud or disruptive behavior or drinking habits that otherwise interfere with the rights of others or lead to other violations of college policies are reasons for disciplinary action, regardless of age.
Alcoholic beverages may not be consumed or carried in open containers in hallways, lounges, courtyard, kitchens or other public areas. Kegs, as well as other large sources of alcohol such as, but not limited to, punches and grain alcohol are not permitted in or around the vicinity of St. Norbert residence halls.
Students may not possess or use “beer bongs,” “funnels” or other paraphernalia that can promote irresponsible consumption of alcohol.
Storage or display of bottles or cans in windows is prohibited for safety reasons. Students are prohibited from storing or possessing empty alcohol containers in rooms, suites or bathrooms. If empty alcohol containers are found in residence halls, staff members will assume that the residents of the room(s) or suite(s) and any students present in the space are, or were, in possession of alcohol and have a shared responsibility for the containers. All residents and involved students may be subject to disciplinary or judicial follow up, including fines.
