Event Planning: Food,
Beverage, and Alcohol Service

Alcohol on campus

In order for alcoholic beverages to be served at a student organization event, specific requirements must be met and university guidelines and policies must be followed

Please reach out to your CSI Advisor and review the . University's Use of Alcoholic Beverages for a UC San Diego Sponsored Event Guidelines before beginning the event planning process. 

Groups planning to serve alcohol or malt beverages at an event must use a university-approved third party licensed beverage server.

If your group is planning to serve alcohol or malt beverages at a group function, you must use a university-approved third party licensed beverage server.

Barbecues/ grills on Library Walk

If you need to rent a grill, you can reserve them through Price Center Reservations. The cost is $40 per day and is due prior to the event. If you need a grill for another part of campus, you can rent one from a pre-approved vendor listed in the approved other vendor list.

Classroom meetings

Food is not allowed in classrooms (Center Hall, Peterson, H&SS, etc.) without special approval from the Registrar’s Office.
