Wheaton College, as a licensee, is responsible for the administration of the sale and service of alcoholic beverages in accordance with the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Town of Norton.

We will serve alcoholic beverages in a safe and responsible manner and reserve the right to refuse service to any individual who is intoxicated or an individual who cannot provide one of the three following identifications:

  • Valid state-issued drivers license
  • Valid state-issued identification card
  • Valid U.S. passport

Wheaton College holds a liquor license permitting the service of wine and malt beverages in specific locations on campus. Please note that under special circumstances you may be required to apply for a one-day liquor license with the Town of Norton. This will be determined by working with Dining Services, and they will assist with the application process.
