Drugs and alcohol

The University is committed to maintaining a campus environment that is free of illegal drugs and of drugs and alcohol that are used illegally. Additionally, the UW prohibits alcohol consumption on campus, except in accordance with Washington state liquor license procedures.

If you are in a position that requires a commercial driver’s license, you should expect to be tested for drugs and alcohol prior to and during your employment in that position.

If you are struggling with alcoholism or drug dependency, the UW offers resources to help you. Available support services are listed in the UW Alcohol and Drug Abuse Policy.
