Poster:
Concerning levels of alcohol related harm have been reported in the literature, both for students in Ireland1 and for students in UCC2. Incidents of anti-social behaviour, drunkenness, alcohol related injuries and even assaults have been noted in the university community and the local environs around the campus. The adverse consequences of the misuse of alcohol amongst our students are very real, all too common, and occasionally have been very serious, up to and including devastating injury and death. Given these very visible and serious consequences of the misuse of alcohol amongst our students it is vital that every effort is made to engage with this serious issue.

We describe the development and implementation of an Action Plan to reduce the impact of alcohol-related harm on our students.
