Reminder: College's Smoking Policy


Contributed by Eileen Patocka

Submitted on behalf of Robert Cree, assistant vice president for business and finance. 

With the recent addition of both the Peggy Ryan Williams Center and Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise, I thought it would be helpful to remind the campus community of the College's smoking policy and its designated outdoor smoking areas. 

It is important to remind everyone that the State of New York prohibits smoking in the public areas of all buildings within the state. As such Ithaca College has an established Smoking Policy (2.8.10) that directly addresses this for the campus community and provides a listing of the designated outdoor smoking areas.

The College is required to enforce public health law and not allow smoking in public spaces. 

We ask smokers to keep this in mind by not smoking in vestibules and entranceways, and confining their smoking to the designated outdoor smoking areas as established in the College’s Smoking Policy.  For your convenience I have listed the designated smoking areas below and would ask that you familiarize yourself with the nearest designated outdoor smoking area for your location.  (For example, the nearest designated outdoor smoking area for the Peggy Ryan Williams Center is the Dillingham Center loading dock facing F lot.)
