2.8.10 Smoking Policy

2.8.10 Smoking Policy

In recognition of research demonstrating that smoking is hazardous to both the smoker as well as the non-smoker who may be breathing secondhand smoke, New York State has adopted a law that imposes a number of restrictions on smoking in Public spaces. The following policy was adopted by Ithaca College in order to comply with this law.

a. General Guidelines

Smoking includes but is not limited to use of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, e-cigarettes, and personal vaporizers or other devices associated with "vaping."

Smoking is prohibited in all residence halls and apartments, dining areas, classrooms, theaters, auditoriums, gymnasiums, the indoor pool area, laboratories, the library, individual offices, College cars and vans, meeting rooms, lounges, balconies, hallways, stairwells, lobby areas, restrooms, elevators, waiting rooms, areas that contain photocopying equipment or other office equipment used in common, and all other indoor campus facilities unless otherwise indicated below.

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.

b. Instructional Areas

Smoking by performers as part of a theatrical production is permitted. Smoking is strictly prohibited in all other areas used for instructional purposes.
