Smoking Policy

The Skidmore College Smoking Policy became effective beginning January 1, 2019.

The purpose of the Skidmore College Smoking Policy is to promote a culture of wellness and provide the community with a healthy, respectful working and learning environment by limiting the potential exposure of students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the effects of secondhand smoke and by reducing the risk of fires.

Smoking of any substance is prohibited on College property including campus grounds, North Woods, enclosed bridges and walkways, sidewalks, and parking lots. Smoking of any substance is also prohibited in all structures and buildings owned, operated, leased, occupied, or controlled by the College, including near exits, windows, or ventilation intakes. Smoke-free and tobacco-free areas include indoor/outdoor classrooms, studios, balconies, rooftops, hallways, public and private offices, College vehicles and private vehicles parked on campus property, residential facilities, break rooms, restrooms, administrative buildings, dining facilities, and athletic venues.
