The revised policy extends the "Smoke-Free" zone to include the majority of the campus. Smoking will now be permitted only in designated outdoor areas where smoking huts have been installed. -- see Designated smoking areas (pdf).
The new policy is designed to promote healthy lifestyles as well as to protect faculty, staff, and students from second-hand smoke, while addressing the growing litter problem on campus that is directly related to smoking.
