Alcohol Service

Bon Appétit has the alcohol license for all alcohol served at the Knight Management Center. For the protection of the University, department functions in which alcohol is served should be done with an ABC license and served by a certified server. By having Bon Appétit provide this service we can all be sure alcohol is served according to policies and the law. Students are required to work through the Student Activities and Leadership Department to obtain approvals for serving alcohol. If you prefer to provide your own beer and wine Bon Appétit has a corkage fee rate.
