The University has a ‘Smokefree Policy’. This means that all University buildings are smoke free and that no smoking is allowed in or within ten metres of any building on campus. This is to protect occupants of rooms which are near to areas where smokers may congregate. Anyone found breaking these rules could face disciplinary action.

All smokers are encouraged not to litter and to dispose of their cigarette butts and other waste smoking materials in the waste bins provided.
