Students should act responsibly when hosting social gatherings. The most severe consequences for violations of the College policy (e.g.: suspension or expulsion from the College) arise from serving alcohol to minors, and therefore generally are imposed on hosts of parties. Whether or not alcohol is served, hosts must be residents of the suite which is hosting the party, and must be present at all times during the party. Parties cannot make use of multiple suites, nor can a suite host a party for a student group with which they themselves are not affiliated.
Blackout dates are dates that parties in the house are not allowed, for a variety of reasons, in addition to school nights. Blackout dates for Fall 2021 are as follows:
- Aug 20 - Sept 6 (move-in)
- Further dates to be announced
