Alcoholic beverages may be possessed and consumed at approved events in the atrium area ONLY. Event organizers must obtain approval in writing from the Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs/Director of Auxiliary Services at least seven days in advance of the event: http://cam.illinois.edu/viii/VIII-10.htm

The approved form must be submitted to HMNTL by email to the HMNTL business office at mntl-businessoffice@illinois.edu.

A staff member from your unit must be on hand at all times to ensure that no alocholic beverages leave the atrium area!

requiredPlease note that all external doors lock at 5pm. Also be aware that that at 5pm all internal doors leading to the loading dock, shops, clean rooms, basement, and freight elevator are auto locked to isolate the east and west building hazards. The courtyard gate in the loading dock area locks at 4:30 pm. It is the responsibility of the department/unit hosting the event to ensure that caterers can get into the building after 5pm and are informed that service vehicles parked inside the courtyard at 4:30 pm could be locked in overnight. HMNTL staff members are not typically available after 5pm to assist in these matters.
