Social Functions

Townsville has numerous venues suitable for celebrating birthdays and special occasions. However, if you wish to host a small informal event at your Hall, an application must be submitted to your Senior RA at least 5 days prior to the event, or 28 days if alcohol is to be sold or provided (however we do not recommend this for private functions). Residents hosting a function will be held responsible for all attendee behaviour.

To summarise, conditions of hosting a function within the Halls are as follows:

  • Appropriate permission must be obtained. Applications are available at the office.

  • A responsible person must remain sober in case of emergency.

  • Non-alcoholic beverages must be available.

  • Food must be served before, during or after the event.

  • Music or loud noise must cease at 11:00pm.

  • The function must cease completely and all guests vacate the premises by midnight.

  • All non-residents must vacate the area when the last of the residents leave.

  • Function organisers must undertake to remove bottles, cans and other rubbish either immediately after the function, or by 8am the following day.

  • Failure to comply with these conditions may result in the loss of privilege to host further functions.

Residents should also familiarise themselves with the Policy for Alcohol Consumption on University Property.
