Campus Smoking Policy Update

The Smoking Policy was updated in November 2008 to reflect the new campus policy standard form. The new form clarifies the intent of the policy and contact information. You may find the updated policy at www.umbc.edu/hr.

In the continuing effort to improve the quality of life, new designated smoking areas were added on campus to include the residential areas and TRC. This addition doubles the number of designated smoking locations. A new rectangular smoking urn has been wall or post mounted at these locations. They are made from recycled steel. Each urn has two screens for extinguishing cigarettes before depositing. New free-standing “No Smoking” signs provide information for designated smoking locations and policy contact telephone numbers. You may find the map of designated smoking areas at www.umbc.edu/fm.
