What is your policy on alcohol?

 It is illegal in the state of New York for anyone under the age of 21 to possess, consume, or be under the influence of alcohol. It is illegal for students who are of age to sell or serve alcohol to minors.

Our policy supports this law, but does allow students 21 and over to consume alcohol in on-campus residence halls and apartments under very specific parameters.

First-year student halls are dry in resident hall rooms, including Saunders Hall, Space Hall, and Davis Hall. Alcohol is prohibited regardless of the student’s age.

In addition, Keuka College upholds a town ordinance that prohibits drinking alcohol in public places.
