Queens College ranks pretty low in terms of drugs and drinking on campus. There is a group of students on campus who smoke pot and a larger group who drink alcohol. Students have illegal parties with booze on campus, but the RAs generally catch people. Students who want to drink and be involved in drug use will go to friends' apartments or other areas off campus to do so. The campus is very strict regarding alcohol and drug usage, and most students seem to come to QC with a serious will to succeed in a dry scene. Also, the fact that Queens is a commuter campus makes students less inclined to be involved in these activities. Students say they can have a great social life without the use of drugs.

The laws regarding the use of drugs and alcohol apply to the City Universities of New York, and these activities are not tolerated. The discovery of students using drugs on campus leads to serious consequences. Depending on the severity of the situation and students' willingness to comply, a student caught using drugs may result in a warning, disciplinary probation, and/or arrest. The Vice President of Student Affairs may decide either to take disciplinary action against a student or refer him or her to counseling.
