Substance-free Housing Waiver Chapters

Delta Upsilon is dedicated to providing safe, supportive environments in which we build better men. We strive to make our chapters and campus communities stronger.

SUBSTANCE-FREE HOUSING WAIVER PROGRAM

For the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years, a waiver program will exist as part of the Substance-free Housing Policy. This waiver program will grant chapters who qualify addtional time to plan for full policy implementation. Chapters without a waiver must implement the full Substance-free Housing Policy.

The following is allowed for waiver chapters:

  • The chapter can host up to six events with alcoholic beverages (under 15% ABV) in common areas of the chapter facility per year (no more than four events per semester/term). These events must be registered and pre-approved (five days in advance) by the International Fraternity. 
  • Brothers over the legal age can possess and consume alcoholic beverages (under 15% ABV) in bedrooms when events are not being held. (No alcohol is to be consumed in bedrooms regardless of a person’s age during events.)
  • Allows for up to six alumni events per year. These events must be registered and pre-approved by International Fraternity and have a third-party vendor or follow DU's BYOB guidelines, as well as all other Fraternity and university policy.
  • Non-registered/informal events with alcohol in common spaces are not permitted.
