Alcohol and Bar Services Policy

Lakehead understands the choice to partake in alcoholic beverages is a personal one. Food & Conference Services is ready to help ensure you can provide your guests with this option in a safe, effective manner where everybody is able to enjoy your event to its fullest.

Lakehead University Food & Conference Services has oversight for the liquor services on campus. Lakehead University has contracted ARAMARK Campus Services Ltd (Thunder Bay) and DANA HOSPITALITY (Orillia) to manage and operate all liquor service activities that fall outside the specific jurisdiction of the Lakehead University Student Union (i.e. The Outpost and The Study).

Campus events - receptions, dinners, special occasions, conference bookings - may have alcohol served within licensed venues such as our Dining Hall (Orillia), Faculty Lounge or Conference Centre, with our friendly and knowledgeable Food and Conference Services staff overseeing the safety of your guests - so you don't have to.

Together with Aramark or Dana Hospitality certified servers, the Food & Conference Services staff are on site to ensure all provincial guidelines regarding alcohol service are followed.
