Working towards a no-smoking campus

Working towards a no-smoking campus

A new University no-smoking policy was launched, to coincide with 1 July 2007 when virtually all enclosed public places and workplaces in England became smoke-free.

The policy aims to provide a healthy working environment and protect the health of employees, students and visitors to the University by raising awareness of the dangers associated with exposure to tobacco smoke.

Support will be offered to those who wish to stop smoking, linking in with local smoking cessation services.

The no-smoking policy prohibits:

  • smoking within any University building, except certain residential accommodation (conditions apply, see section 5 of the policy)
  • smoking in the vicinity of entrances and exits to University buildings
  • smoking in vehicles owned or hired by the University

The policy will apply to all employees, students, contractors and visitors to the University. Breaches of the policy may result in disciplinary action.
