In order to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all members of the University of South Florida System (USF System) community, this policy provides guidelines regarding the consumption and sale of alcoholic beverages on USF System* campuses.


As an open public university, the USF System does not prohibit the legal consumption of alcohol on its campuses. We recognize that as part of a well-planned and structured program, the serving and consumption of alcohol may take place. Therefore, the intent of this policy is to establish guidelines and procedures for the legal and responsible use of alcohol.


This Website provides information and resources regarding USF alcohol and drug policies.


While the alcohol policy applies to the entire USF System, some of the guidelines and forms on this Website are unique to USF Tampa. Please check with your local Student Affairs Office for specifics related to other system campuses.
