Policy Provisions

Smoking and Use of Tobacco Products


The use of tobacco products, including smokeless tobacco products, is prohibited in all University residence halls, academic and service buildings, athletic venues, and designated non-smoking areas. The use of tobacco products is prohibited within twenty-five (25) feet of any such building intake duct, window or entrance or entryway, including ramps, walkways,

pathways, and any such similar means of entry, unless a University designated tobacco use shelter is otherwise provided. Persons who wish to use tobacco products outside of a building shall do so in a manner that minimizes an accumulation of smoke and tobacco waste. Individuals who use tobacco products are responsible for the proper disposal of such in designated receptacles. The use of tobacco products is prohibited in vehicles owned, leased or rented by the University. The University will provide educational information and programs on tobacco use cessation. All members of the University community share in the responsibility for adhering to this policy and bringing it to the attention of visitors. Violations of this policy are subject to the corrective action and disciplinary procedures as set forth in the Faculty Handbook, Staff Handbook and University Handbook for Students.
