Background and Purpose

Arcadia University is committed to maintaining a healthy and safe learning, working and living environment for all members and guests of our community. Therefore, the University prohibits smoking (including the use of smokeless tobacco) in all University owned buildings and facilities, including but not limited to all classrooms, residences, laboratories, common or lounge areas, conference or meeting rooms, hallways, dining facilities, library,  and restrooms. In addition, all smoking is prohibited within twenty (20) feet of any entrance to a University facility or building. 

The policy covers all smoking methods, including but not limited to the use of electronic smoking devices, such as electronic cigarettes, cigars and pipes (e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes) and hookah-smoked products.  The thoughtfulness and consideration of smokers and non-smokers alike in maintaining smoking restrictions are appreciated.
