UCI recently updated its policy regarding the service of alcoholic beverages at university sponsored events. Specifically, the policy no longer requires an Alcohol Request Form for off-campus events with nine or fewer attendees. For example, if a staff member has a recruitment event at a restaurant off campus for eight people and alcohol is served, they do not need to submit a form.
For more information about serving alcohol at UCI sponsored events, please visit the Hospitality & Dining Services Alcohol Page. The page now includes a decision tree that can help you determine when an Alcohol Request Form is needed. If required, the form should be submitted in advance to Hospitality & Dining Services. Later, when you prepare the Entertainment (ENT) Reimbursement, it should be uploaded along with your receipts and other supporting documents.
