Alcohol Policy

The Wofford College Alcohol Policy can be found online here.

Below you will find a description of how the Office of Residence Life interprets and enforces the Wofford Alcohol Policy.

Marsh Hall, Greene Hall, and Carlisle Hall First Floor

ALLfirst-year housing areas are considered “dry”– no alcohol is allowed. This means no student, guest, or parent should have alcohol in these areas.

Alcohol paraphernalia is also not allowed. You should leave alcohol containers at home– bottles, cans, boxes, etc., even if used for decorative purposes.

If a student or student guest is found to have alcohol or alcohol paraphernalia in one of these areas, the alcohol or alcohol paraphernalia will be confiscated and the student will be referred to judicial court.

Carlisle Hall Second and Third Floors, Apartment Housing Village, DuPré Hall, Lesesne Hall, Shipp Hall, and Wightman Hall

If both residents of a room are 21 years of age or older, they are permitted to have alcohol.

If one resident of a room is 21 years of age or older and the other resident is not yet 21, only the resident who is 21 years of age or older may possess alcohol. This is defined as the person being in the presence of his or her alcohol, or the alcohol being stored in the closet or cube of the person who is 21 years of age or older.

If both residents of a room are under 21 years of age, the room is considered a dry room, and no alcohol is allowed at any time. This means no student, guest, or parent should have alcohol in this room.

Alcohol may not be possessed or consumed in common areas such as hallways, lobbies, or bathrooms.
