Alcohol and Drugs

SUIS provides students and campus with alcohol and drug prevention, education, and intervention.

Indiana University is committed to maintaining a campus environment that enables students to succeed academically and has policies concerning the use, misuse, and abuse of alcohol as defined in Part II, Section H (22) a–f of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct. Alcohol use is prohibited in most undergraduate residence halls and is always prohibited for students who are not of legal drinking age.

Students are also expected to abide by Indiana law. In addition, the university has nearly 40 programs designed to educate students about alcohol misuse/abuse, and faculty infuse information and research into their curricula.
