AlcoholEdu and Haven

As a new member of the University of Louisville family, you will face many opportunities and challenges. For most, it’s your first experience of living on your own and making healthy lifestyle decisions. To assist you, we offer many programs to help you adapt to your new life on campus.

Recognized nationally for their effectiveness, AlcoholEdu and Haven programs use the latest prevention techniques and science-based research to educate students about the impact of alcohol and sexual assault.

AlcoholEdu and Haven are designed to help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and to better cope with the behavior of others. These programs have been helpful to many college students seeking ways to balance their new freedom living away from home with their need to establish a healthy and safe lifestyle as young adults.

To take the courses, you will need a computer with internet access and audio capabilities. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use any available computer with internet access such as those at your public library. On-campus computer labs are available to you as well.

Every incoming undergraduate student is required to take AlcoholEdu (up to age 21) and Haven (all ages). An email will be sent to your UofL email account (after your register, beginning about 5 weeks before the semester starts) giving you specific directions for logging on to AlcoholEdu and Haven. You will need to complete part 1 of both courses, which take about two and a half hours to finish. This process may be broken down into multiple sessions but must be completed by the time classes start.  Forty-five days after completing part 1, you will receive an automated e-mail asking you to complete part 2, which will take about 15 minutes. You have not completed the program until both parts 1 and 2 have been submitted.

If part 1 of AlcoholEdu and Haven are not completed by the end of the first week of classes, an academic hold will be placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for the next semester. These courses and holds have been approved by the Provost and a university wide task force. If you have an academic hold concerns, questions about the program or problems accessing the course, please reference our website at https://louisville.edu/campushealth/alcoholedu-haven or contact alchaven@louisville.edu (phone: 502-852-6513).

All individual responses are strictly confidential; UofL officials will never see any individual student’s answers.

At the University of Louisville we care about students' well-being. AlcoholEdu/Haven has proven to be helpful to more than 1 million college students nationally, and we believe it will both provide useful information to students and help us create a safer campus community.

Thanks for choosing UofL, and welcome to our family!
