If you have questions about alcohol service on campus, please review the FAQs below or contact the Campus Alcohol Agent at 303-492-3269 or email@example.com. If you are planning an event with alcohol, you must follow the University of Colorado Boulder Alcohol Service On Campus Policy.
All requests for an event with alcohol must be submitted 15 calendar days prior to the event unless the event requires a Special Event Permit (SEP). If you plan to use an SEP, contact the Campus Alcohol Agent at least 60 days prior to your event. Please see the Alcohol Service On Campus Policy for the SEP process.
To request permission to hold an event with alcohol please use the Event with Alcohol Authorization Form. Please submit the form electronically using Adobe Reader. (Note: The form will not open in the Chrome browser.) Once the form is submitted for approval by the Campus Alcohol Agent, you will receive an email confirming the receipt of the form. If you do not receive a confirmation email within two business days, please resubmit the authorization request. If you are unable to use electronic submission, you may email the form to Campus Alcohol Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unsure about the type of event you are having or the requirements for that event, please refer to the Alcohol Policy Decision Tree.

The CU Event Coordinator is the CU employee responsible for filling out the Event with Alcohol Authorization Form (AAF) and ensuring compliance with CU policies. The CU Event Coordinator is also responsible for informing the Designee of our policies and procedures. The Designee is responsible for complying with all campus policies and laws regarding alcohol. This includes signage, present at the entire event, previously printed invitation list, AAF is on site and ensure non-alcoholic beverages and food are at the entire event. (The Designee, server and check-in person are three separate roles and cannot be combined.)
Auxiliary funds (funds 20 and 29) can be used to pay for alcohol at a CU sponsored event where an admission or registration fee is the same regardless of whether the person attending consumes alcohol or not.
If there is no charge to attendees or the event is a fundraising event, a fund 34 speedtype with a Gift Purpose Code 2 of Y must be used.
