Knight Hall and Bauer Hall

Olin Departments are free to engage the caterer of their choice for food and non-alcoholic beverages. Arrangements for alcoholic beverages in Knight and Bauer Halls must be arranged through Aramark. Aramark’s liquor license that covers the Knight Center will be extended to also cover Knight and Bauer Halls. Catering of alcoholic beverages must be arranged through Aramark’s Knight Center staff. For small events, student groups or Olin departments may procure and serve alcoholic beverages provided that the liquor license holder (Aramark) is not involved in any way, and provided that event attendees stay within Knight and Bauer Halls with the beverages (i.e. attendees should not enter Knight Center properties with alcoholic beverages, including the court yard).

For alcoholic beverages, the caterer must procure a temporary liquor license if they will provide and/or serve alcohol. The event planner should discuss this arrangement with the caterer to ensure that proper licenses have been acquired.
