Please note that the College has stipulated the following requirements for those who do not wish to consume alcohol:

  1. The students must be named in advance if they are not drinking alcohol in order to be eligible for the discount (to be applied on the College bill).
  2. Students cannot change their minds on the night, if they do or not wish to drink.
  3. College staff will be checking to verify that students who have selected the non-alcoholic option are indeed not drinking on the night.
