Alcohol & Other Drugs Policy

As a student, it is important to understand university policies regarding alcohol and the conduct process. Remember, if you are under 21, it is illegal to consume alcohol on or off campus.

Student Code of Conduct - Article VIII

The code of conduct exists to educate students in understanding their rights and responsibilities as members of a safe, civil, and ethical academic community. Though formal in language, the manner in which students experience the judicial process involves respect, due process, and education designed to prevent and mitigate harm. Colleges and universities nationwide acknowledge that alcohol use is a question that each student must answer for himself or herself. The code is a helpful resource in understanding the University’s position on alcohol abuse, underage use, and the requirements imposed by the State of Idaho in the issuing of sanctions related to violations of the University’s alcohol policies.

The section pertaining to alcohol use is Article VIII of the Code of Conduct:

Article VIII-Drugs and Alcohol.

  1. The sale, use, or possession of illegal drugs is a violation of this code.
  2. Sale or illegal possession or illegal consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited in facilities owned, leased, or operated by UI and on campus grounds.
  3. Alcoholic beverages may not be possessed or consumed under any circumstances in areas open to and most commonly used by the general public. These areas include, but are not limited to, lounges, student union buildings, recreation rooms, conference rooms, athletic facilities, and other public areas of UI-owned buildings or grounds.
  4. UI's primary role in handling matters involving the use or potential use of drugs or alcohol by its students is that of counseling. However, in appropriate situations, the full range of sanctions may be applied.
