University Policies for Students Regarding Alcohol and Drugs
The Student Code of Conduct states that the following conduct is not acceptable on campus: Violation of Board or university rules governing alcohol, including consumption, distribution, unauthorized sale or possession of alcoholic beverages (5-308F.15).
According to the Residential Life Standards of Residence, on-campus possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages by those of legal age (the State of Arizona has established the legal age for consumption of alcohol to be 21) is allowed only in the private living quarters of certain residence halls and other campus living units as well as certain other designated areas. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in public areas other than those designated is prohibited.
With regard to drugs, the Student Code of Conduct states that the following conduct is prohibited on campus: Unauthorized use, sale, possession, or distribution of any controlled substance or illegal drug or possession of drug paraphernalia that would violate the law (5-308F.16). The Standards of Residence state that the possession, use, sale, manufacture/cultivation or provision of any types of illegal drugs (Barbiturates, opiates, marijuana, amphetamines, hallucinogens, etc.) or aiding in the use of such are not permitted in residence halls and are violations of federal and state law (I.B.1).
Medical marijuana is also prohibited on all University property. The Standards of Residence state that University policy and federal law prohibits the use, possession, or cultivation of marijuana, including medical marijuana, on University property, including in all University residential facilities. This prohibition also applies to those who possess a medical marijuana card (I.B.4). Students should familiarize themselves with the University’s Statement Regarding Medical Marijuana.
