Student events where alcoholic drinks will be served cannot begin before 3 pm.  Dean Hirshen will not approve alcohol permit forms unless the event conforms to this stipulation.  Similarly, pending events with alcohol service set before 3pm will not be approved by Room Planning.

•Room reservations for events where alcohol is served are considered to be pending until the Alcoholic Beverages Permit (see below) is signed off by U.C.P.D.
•The person submitting the alcohol permit must be the same person who made the room request.
