Bar services booked less than 10 working days in advance will be subject to a late booking fee.  All alcoholic beverages on campus must be provided by UW Catering.

Bar services are available at the locations listed on the University of Waterloo Liquor License.  All other non-licensed locations must be booked 15 working days in advance of the event.  An administrative fee will apply for licensing of unlisted spaces.  All of our bartenders have their Smart Serve certification.
