There are formal alcohol policies at universities in Slovakia.
Mostly non-systematic and often not implemented in practice.
To explore student attitudes towards alcohol policy on their campus.
"Like, of course, when I go to exercise, or to a lecture, so of course there should not be (alcohol), but at the halls itis not possible to prohibit it..." 5/40
University premises where education itself is carried out
Ignorance/lack of information about formal rules/banning alcohol on university premises.
"It is forbidden, but it's tolerated.”
" So I think that the situation, as it is now is bad. If someone violates a rule, e.g. comes in drunk for a lecture, and it isn't dealt with then no-one else is afraid to come in drunk. Because after all, nothing will come of it, no problem /consequences.The fact that those students are not obeying the rules, is wrong."
"That if you drink, do it in silence, and afterwards clean up all the mess, the empty bottles must be taken to the containers outside the building. It was a rule. It was the cleaning lady, who pointed this out if by chance we would like to drink."2/20
" No bottles, no problem. "
Informal/formal system of control and assistance in situations associated with alcohol drinking, disturbance of night silent hours or damaging theuniversityproperty;
Only at some halls of residence(mostly attheTechnical unieversity in Košice)
Part of students' union, different extent of institutionalization
Motivation - freeaccommodationpoints, free internet or gym, discount on accommodation
“After ten in the evening you have to be quiet. When an event is announced, it may be tolerated until midnight. But if there's a big mess, they will finish it earlier. Those student cops. And it is dealt with by taking the accommodation points. "5/18
“ They have enough respect. They come to the room and no one dares to run away, because you have nowhere to escape. When they catch youwhile you are running, you will have a much bigger problem. They take your accommodation card and the next day you go to the student council. About 12 people sit there and they wonder what you did. “ 3/231
“ But those in the Student Council, or the police they do not respect them (the rules). There is nobody to punish them. They can also have a party until 1 AM, it does not matter to anyone. They disturb others, making noise, at any time they want, even after 2AM or later. “ 5/308
