Village Alcohol Allowed Housing

Village Alcohol Allowed Housing

General Alcohol Allowed Housing information, including requirements, can be viewed here.

Residents may become eligible for Alcohol Allowed Housing, beginning on the first day of classes for the semester, as per our Academic Calendar; pending they have complied with the application process.

Application process:

  1. Each resident who is 21 must fill out the alcohol allowed agreement. 
  2. Once the alcohol allowed agreement is filled out by all residents who are 21, the residents need to send an email to their hall office to confirm they have all filled out the form. 
  3. The hall office will place an alcohol allowed agreement inside, next to the apartment door. It is the residents responsibility to ensure that this agreement is always visible in the allocated spot that it was placed. 

Until this process is completed, the housing assignment is alcohol prohibited.

The agreement is only valid for one semester and Residence Life staff will update the agreement each semester.

Please refer to the Student Handbook for Ramapo’s Alcohol Cannabis, Other Drug and Good Samaritan Policy.
