The University of Kentucky says it will relax its ban on alcohol to allow legal drinking at some places on the Lexington campus.
UK President Eli Capilouto also says the school will extend its code of student conduct to places off campus.
Rowdy fans have swarmed streets near the UK campus after Final Four appearances by the Kentucky men's basketball team. Some fans set couches on fire in incidents that have been embarrassing for the university.
Capilouto says the university wants to strengthen its relationship with campus neighbors and the broader community.
