In all cases, the event sponsor should refer to the Montana State University Billings Alcohol Policy to insurance compliance with state law, Board of Regents policy, and MSU Billings policy.
Any leftover alcohol must be picked up from the catering office within 24 hours after the event. If you need to drop of f or pick up alcohol at any other time (including immediately before or after the event), please contact inform Conference and Special Event Services to make arrangements with Catering Services.
