The Horowitz Events Centre is licensed by the University to provide alcohol for on-campus functions that are operating under the University's institutional liquor licence.

Prior to requesting alcohol, you must receive approval from the University of Alberta. Once approved, you will receive a liquor permit from the university. This permit is required for your liquor purchases. More information on alcohol requests and permits for your event can be found here. Your liquor permit and liquor invoice must be visible at your event.
