Welcome to PartySafe@Cal!

PartySafe@Cal aims to reduce alcohol-related risks and harm in the campus area. Our efforts operate simultaneously to reach individual students, the student body as a whole, and the greater college community.

Whether you are a party goer, party thrower, student leader or neighbor, take some kind of action - big or small - to improve alcohol and party management in our campus community. Though it’s not always easy, it is simple.
