For approved social events, we provide catered beer, wine, and soda. No other alcohol, including liquor, is permitted or served on campus. Our role is to serve our patrons responsibly, ensuring their well-being, while protecting the University and beverage staff against liability. Please review a comprehensive explanation of the Adelphi University Drug and Alcohol Policy.
Requests for wine and/or beer, to be served at an event, must be made via email to the Operations Manager. As our bar is not stationary, we need ample time to prepare and schedule bartenders for your event. Please ensure that your event needs are explicitly communicated according to the timeline below.
Student organizations may request wine and/or beer service for events in the University Center and Alumni House only. These requests must be made a minimum of thirty (30) days prior to the event at the Programming Planning Meeting.
Requests for wine and/or beer service from departments or non-university clients for events in the University Center or Alumni House must be received at least two (2) weeks prior to the event. For a cash bar, the request must be received at least four (4) weeks prior to the event. Requests for wine and/or beer service for events at other locations on campus, regardless of open or cash bar, require a temporary liquor permit and therefore must be received at least six (6) weeks prior to the event.Please be aware that wine and beer service cannot be guaranteed to late requests. Final attendance numbers must be confirmed for all events serving alcohol.
