Smoking Policy


The university protects the public health by prohibiting smoking in all university facilities so that non-smokers are guaranteed smoke-free air.


It is the policy of the University of Puget Sound that students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the university are entitled to live, study, work, etc., in areas that are free of tobacco smoke. In application of this policy, responsibility rests with faculty, staff, students, and visitors who do smoke to defer to the health and preferences of other faculty, staff, students, and visitors.

It is the responsibility of department heads and supervisors and Residential Programs staff to enforce this policy.


Smoking is prohibited in all academic, administrative, residential and public buildings of the university. This includes all offices, classrooms, restrooms, Facilities Services shops, vehicles and all common areas within buildings and residences.
