  • Being under the influence of cannabis to the degree that you may be a health or safety risk to yourself, others, or University Property is a violation of the Code of Conduct. 
  • University of Dayton is required to follow federal laws that classify cannabis, medical marijuana, and synthetically derived cannabinoids (Schedule I) as illegal controlled substances. 
  • UD’s housing contract states that it is a violation of state law, local municipality, and University policy to possess, distribute, manufacture, or sell illegal drugs.  Medical marijuana is prohibited on University Property.

Alcohol and Other Drug Policy

If you or a friend have been using illegal substances and you need medical attention, call 911 or Public Safety 937-229-2121. 

University of Dayton’s Medical Amnesty policy protects students who call to get help for someone who needs emergency medical attention (for example, is passed out or unresponsive) because of substance use.   

Students will typically not face University Conduct Action for use or possession of alcohol or drugs if they: 

  • Notify the appropriate authorities (911, police, campus security, resident assistant) 
  • Believe you are the first caller 
  • Provide your name 
  • Stay with the person until authorities arrive 

The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, requires that any institution of higher education that receives federal financial assistance must adopt and implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and alcohol abuse by students and employees.

Pursuit to this requirement, the Department of Education General Administrative Regulations Part 86 requires that colleges and universities annually distribute specified drug and alcohol prevention information to students and employees  and conduct a biennial review of their drug and alcohol prevention programs.
