The New York State minimum drinking age (21 years) is observed at all campus functions. Proof of age is required to consume alcoholic beverages and no individual appearing to be under the influence of alcohol will be served.

All Hunter College organizations sponsoring events must, in advance of the event, agree to the following conditions:

  2. No person shall sell or provide an alcoholic beverage to a person actually or apparently under the influence of alcohol.
  3. No person shall sell or provide an alcoholic beverage to a person known to be a habitual excessive drinker.
  4. All advertising, promotion, publicity, invitations, etc. stating the availability of alcoholic beverages at an event, must include the following statement:

The unlawful possession, use or distribution of drugs is prohibited on the campus. Violators will be subject to penalties ranging from reprimand and warning for a first infraction, to separation from the college for a subsequent offense.

Legal sanctions against students alleged to be in violation of Public Law 101- 226 will be determined according to Article 15 Section 3 of the CUNY Board of Trustees Bylaws. Sanctions for members of the instructional staff and non-instructional staff will be governed by Article VII of the CUNY Board of Trustees Bylaws and Article XIV, respectively.
