  • Smoking Policy

    The revised policy extends the "Smoke-Free" zone to include the majority of the campus. Smoking will now be permitted only in designated outdoor areas where smoking huts have been installed. Additional huts have been ordered - see Designated smoking areas (pdf).

    The new policy is designed to promote healthy lifestyles as well as to protect faculty, staff, and students from second-hand smoke, while addressing the growing litter problem on campus that is directly related to smoking.

    Learn more about the health effects of smoking and the benefits of quitting.
