Underage Drinking and Associated Responsibilities

  • Student Drug & Alcohol Policy
  • The Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation regarding underage drinking and associated responsibilities.

The legislation defines "underage adults" as those individuals who are at least eighteen (18) years of age but less than twenty-one (21) years of age.
  • A resident may face criminal prosecution and University sanction if an underage adult consumes alcohol on his or her property which includes, but is not limited to, a residence hall room or apartment, fraternity or sorority affiliated housing, an off-campus house or apartment, or any other property owned or occupied by the individual.
