At Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the primary goals of the Strategic Plan is to be among the most highly respected technology-focused learning institutions in the world. To accomplish this goal and work towards the vision, the health of Georgia Tech students is a priority. Alcohol misuse and/or abuse can impede the academic and personal success of both students who choose to drink as well as those who choose not to drink.
Georgia Tech complies with all federal, state, and local laws and policies, including the policies of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, on the use of alcohol and other drugs by students. Further, the Institute enforces a Student Code of Conduct and policies for students living on-campus through Housing and Residence Life. All students at Georgia Tech, regardless of international or domestic status are held to the legal drinking age in the state of Georgia, which is 21 years of age.
The goal of this website is to provide a comprehensive overview of alcohol education including: information about policies, programs, and resources for support.
