Approval Request for Use of Alcoholic Beverages

This form must be submitted at least five (5) business days prior to the proposed event. A registered account is required to submit the online form (UVA users should log in via NetBadge). If you have changes or questions regarding your request, please contact [email protected] or (434) 924-7984.

Who Should Complete this Request?

  1. Your event will be held on University property (regardless of who is in attendance); or

  2. You are a University department hosting a University Function (on or off University property).

Important Points

  • Independent of University approval and in accordance with state law, some events may require an ABC license. Requestors are responsible for obtaining this license, if necessary.
  • In conjunction with the standard work day, alcohol service will not be approved on weekdays prior to 5 p.m. Requests for exceptions may be submitted via this form, however, approvals are issued on an event-by-event basis.
  • Regardless of past approvals for annual events, all requests are reviewed individually and approvals are issued on an event-by-event basis. Please review the Guidelines for Hosting a Safe Event.
  • If you are expecting underage guests at your event, personnel trained in the Event Manager module must be present to supervise the service of alcohol (with the exception of events that occur at off-Grounds third-party licensed establishments).
