Campus Smoking Areas - Policy

Contributed by Sue DuBrava on 03/01/10 

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 cannot allow smoking in public spaces.

  • Smoking Areas: Outside.  Open areas located a minimum of 20 feet away from entrances to enclosed areas, common points of ingress and egress, operable windows, and all types of HVAC air handling and circulation systems.

We ask smokers to keep this in mind by not smoking in vestibules and entrance ways, and confining their smoking to the designated outdoor smoking areas as established in the College's smoking policy. For your convenience I have also listed the designated smoking areas below:
