Party Registration Policy

Note that the Office of Campus Life is no longer accepting party registration requests for the fall semester, as classes concluded on December 9 and students are in study period. The Office will begin accepting requests once students are back in session for winter semester.

All student events involving alcohol must be registered with the Office of Campus Life. Please note that you may only register parties in spaces in the building you live in. If you want to register a party with alcohol in a building in which you do not live, you must partner with someone who lives there to plan the event.

2016-17 Spaces Designated for Parties with Alcohol: Chase House, Hacker, Hayes, Herrick, Holmes, Hopkins, John Bertram ground floor lounge, Mitchell, Moody, Moulton, Pierce, Rzasa, Small, Webb.

 To host an event with alcohol, complete the following steps:

(1) Fill out the form below.

(2) A 21+ event sponsor must attend a meeting with the Office of Campus Life to review all Maine State laws and Bates College policies related to alcohol and to sign the Party Registration form.
