UCSC's Message to students regarding “4-20”
UCSC is an open and public campus. Of course we will have guests over!

Re: Message to students regarding “4-20”
UCSC is committed to providing a safe, healthy living and learning environment in which you can thrive while earning a world class education. To that end, I write regarding a non-University sanctioned event often referred to as “Four-Twenty” or “4/20.” This unsanctioned, unwelcome and illegal activity diminishes UCSC’s reputation and draws negative attention to the campus. Additionally, this event creates multiple challenges for the campus and creates unacceptable risks to safety. Your safety is paramount, as is the need to continue campus operations that support learning. Therefore, the following measures will be in place:
April 17 – April 20:
On Monday, April 20:
UCSC continues to educate students about the risks of alcohol and drug use, provide alternative activities, and enforce University policies. Yet, ultimately, activities such as this are shaped by the individual choices and behaviors of community members. I encourage you to engage with your peers, other university community members and Student Affairs staff about these issues. We can support you in planning and participating in alternative activities that highlight your accomplishments as scholars and engaged world citizens.
