Smoking Policy at Dickinson

This online policy content is provided as a resource for the students, faculty, staff, and administration of Dickinson College. Content is subject to change. Please contact the appropriate person or office to obtain the most current information.

Dickinson College promotes a smoke-free environment, and smoking and the use of electronic cigarettes is permitted only in outdoor areas of the campus not within 25 feet of a building. No smoking is allowed in any building on campus. This includes private offices, residence hall rooms and public buildings. The use of electronic cigarettes is also prohibited in buildings on campus. The success of this policy depends upon the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of smokers and nonsmokers. In all cases, the right of nonsmokers to protect their health will take precedence over a smoker's desire to smoke.
