Alcoholic Beverages


Bemidji State University prohibits the use of any alcoholic beverages on the campus. This prohibition extends to Residence Halls, athletic facilities/events, and school activities, and applies to any person on University grounds, whether or not he or she is a member of the University community. The only exceptions to this absolute prohibition are authorized laboratory experiments and sale and consumption in accordance with special licensing procedure provided by law. Any such sale, possession, or consumption is strictly controlled and allowed only in those areas of campus specifically designated in the temporary license.

Bemidji State University prohibits the illegal use, possession, sale, manufacture, or distribution of drugs or actions involving drugs which may involve medical or psychological hazards to individuals, or actions involving drugs which may lead to interference with the rights and privileges of others.

All events on campus or during an organization event, in any situation sponsored or endorsed by the University and/or organization, or in any event an observer would associate with the University and/or organization, including off-campus events must be in compliance with the stated policies below:
1.    All students and student organizations at Bemidji State University must observe all laws, statutes, and ordinances that govern the sale or consumption of alcohol in Minnesota.
2.    All events must have a Third Party Vendor properly licensed by appropriate local and state authorities with a 1 million dollar liability insurance policy. All sales of alcohol must be on an individual drink by drink basis and staffed only with employees of the host site or Third Party Vendor.
3.    All events that have alcohol present must be in a location properly zoned for the distribution and consumption of alcoholic beverages.
4.    No kegs, or other common source alcohol containers (such as punch, party balls, etc.) are permitted.
5.    Student Organization funds or money generated from student activity fees or admission fees collected at the event may not be used for the purchase of alcohol.
6.    No event shall include drinking contests, drink specials, or have alcohol as prizes to any contests.
7.    Organizations must have designated driver programs in place. This program should specifically include provisions for commuting students who will be returning to their off-campus residences following the event.


The University permits the use of its facilities by student organizations, individual students and the public. University activities are given priority on use of facilities over individual students or outside groups.

Individuals or groups desiring to use space must make a request to the scheduling office, Hobson Memorial Union. Nominal charges may be made if the event requires special equipment and/or extended building hours.

The reservationist shall approve applications properly completed unless there is reason to believe:

   1. The facility is inadequate or inappropriate for the planned event.

   2. The organization is under disciplinary penalty prohibiting its use of University facilities.
3. The proposed use includes an activity which would violate state laws, city ordinance or University policy.

   4. The proposed use would constitute an immediate or potential danger to the peace or security of the University that available law enforcement officers could not control or would disrupt or disturb other scheduled programs.

   5. The proposed activity would constitute an unauthorized or unacknowledged joint sponsorship with a private individual or organization.

   6. The use of sound trucks or other sound amplification equipment is prohibited on University property except when special permission has been given in accordance with University policy and guidelines for a scheduled event.


All organizations must adhere to the university’s policy against Hazing.  According to the student code of conduct manual (Code R), “Hazing is an act which endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a person, subjects a person to public humiliation or ridicule, or which destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with or as a condition of continued membership in a student group or organization.  Hazing, whether occurring on or off campus shall be considered a violation of this code.”

Organizations found responsible of the charge of hazing, could lose status as a recognized student organization.
