Responsible Partying

Off-campus parties may involve alcohol and, if you don’t take the proper precautions, things can spiral out of control quickly. To ensure that students at Penn make informed decisions regarding alcohol and other drug consumption, The Office of Alcohol and Other Drug Program Initiatives offers a wide range of services to educate and support the Penn community. The main objective of this office is to provide programs, services and initiatives that are coordinated in accordance with the University's policies surrounding alcohol and other drugs.

For off-campus students in particular, AOD has created a Guide to Planning Events with Alcohol in Your Off-Campus Residence. Additional information on Penn's Alcohol and Other Drug Policy, planning events in off-campus housing and other resources, can be found on AOD's Tips on Living Off-Campus page.
