Since 1 September 2019, drinks and events in and around university buildings are alcohol-free during regular office hours (before 5 p.m.). The alcohol policy applies to employees, students and external parties. This is supplementary to the prevailing policy that employees should not drink alcohol during working hours and students should not drink alcohol in the UU buildings during regular teaching hours.
- The University Hall (incl. Faculty Club), University Museum, Botanic Gardens and Parnassos are mainly used for (ceremonial, cultural and other) events and have a public function. That’s why alcohol may be served before 5 p.m.
- Spirits (15% alcohol or more) are no longer served anywhere, with the exception of in the Faculty Club.
- If you organise an event at an external location, the rules of the relevant operator apply. The Basket and Olympos are also external locations.
- On working days, external parties cannot serve alcohol before 5 p.m. On weekend days, the event organiser determines whether alcohol is served before 5 p.m.
