University Alcohol Policy

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a "permit-only" campus, meaning that no one, regardless of age, can consume alcohol on campus property without a permit and there are strict criteria for obtaining a permit. This includes all buildings, residence halls, stadiums, parking lots, dining and conference facilities, and Greek houses.

Student Code of Conduct

When a student violates a university regulation, they are subject to disciplinary action by the university whether or not their conduct violates civil law.

University Housing Policies

It is a violation of policy to be in a room where alcohol is present whether you are drinking or not, and University Housing policy does not allow you to possess or display containers that held or were intended to hold alcoholic beverages. Alcohol-related conduct that infringes upon the rights of others to a quiet, orderly living environment, or that poses danger to yourself or others is not acceptable under any circumstances. Review these policies in your housing contract booklet.

College Parents Matter

This website is designed to equip you with some tools and resources that will help you engage in effective communication with your students. You’ll find some statistics about alcohol, cannabis, and related problems. However, the focus is how to talk with your student. We’ve organized it by common situations that can include high-risk drinking or substance use, like 21st birthdays, spring break, and housing and roommates. Each page has a section on why the topic is important and a little bit of the research related to that topic, followed by two sections called “Say this” and “Not this”.
