University Catering is not licensed by the State of Washington to sell alcohol. It is the responsibility of the event sponsor or host organization to obtain a Banquet/Event Permit or Special Event Permit in advance, whenever alcohol will be present. The form for the permit may be obtained from Office of the VP of Enrollment & Student Services. A signed copy of this permit must be provided to University Catering 3 business days prior to the event. See "Follow these procedures" below.

Any leftover alcohol must be picked up from the University Catering office within 24 hours after the event. If you need to drop off or pick up alcohol at any other time (including immediately before or after the event) it must be pre-approved by the Catering Director. 

Under Washington State Law, only those 21 years of age and over may legally consume alcoholic beverages. The host or sponsoring group will be responsible for enforcing state laws and campus policies. University Catering reserved the right to refuse service to anyone.

Should you have any questions regarding Washington State Alcohol Laws & policies relative to our catered event please contact the Catering Director to discuss.
