University of Florida Medical Amnesty Policy


In case of an Alcohol or Other Drug Related Emergency, this policy
encourages you to:

  • Get help for you or your friends
  • Call 9-1-1

What happens after the emergency is resolved?

  • The situation is first evaluated to determine if the Medical Amnesty policy applies.
  • If the situation qualifies, students will need to meet with a staff member at the GatorWell Health Promotion Services office for a discussion of the situation.

Does this impact the role of the police?

  • The policy applies only to the UF Student Code of Conduct, Housing and Residence Education Community Standards, and Greek Life policies.
  • UPD and other law enforcement agencies still have the ability to enforce the law.

Why is UF doing this?

  • UF encourages all students to make responsible decisions and seek medical attention in serious or life-threatening situations that result from alcohol and/or other drug abuse.
  • All students should feel confident they can make the right decision if there is an alcohol or other drug related emergency without fear of getting in trouble with the University.
