Policy on Illegal Drugs and Alcohol
WPI enforces the Massachusetts underage drinking laws and state and federal drug laws, including within on-campus and off-campus living residences. The legal drinking age in Massachusetts is 21. Students found in violation of the Policy on Illegal Drugs and Alcohol or engaging in misconduct related to the abuse of alcohol or drugs, will be subject to disciplinary action. Solely in programs involving off-campus travel (namely IGSD project sites), students may comply with the legal drinking age of the respective country they are located in. However, it is important to note that dangerous, or binge drinking in any location is a violation of the Code of Conduct.
