The University of St. Thomas is now able to sell liquor on campus, the Star Tribune reports.
The City Council approved the liquor license in a 6-0 vote on Wednesday. Council Member Dan Bostrom was absent.
St. Thomas must abide by several conditions as a result of receiving the liquor license. St. Thomas is not allowed to have a permanent bar on campus. Liquor for special events can only be sold by the drink and only in three designated areas. Alcohol can be sold between 10 a.m. and midnight.
Concerns from local neighborhoods have been discussed regarding the possibility of disorderly behavior that could stem from increased liquor sales.
St. Thomas is required to reapply for the liquor license annually. They must also submit a monthly update to the West Summit Neighborhood Advisory Committee which will provide information as to where the alcohol sales have taken place.
