Smoking Policy

The Skidmore College Smoking Policy became effective beginning Fall 2014.

The purpose of the Skidmore College smoking policy is to limit the potential exposure of students, faculty, staff and visitors to the effects of second-hand smoke, reduce the risk of fires on campus and provide the community with a healthy, respectful working and learning environment.

Smoking is prohibited in all Skidmore College facilities and College-owned vehicles and within 25 feet of all facilities on campus. Designated smoke-free areas are well marked and make up the interior of the College’s campus. Smoking is permitted, in most cases, in areas facing the loop road. In addition, individuals may smoke in their personal vehicles while parked on campus.

More information regarding this policy (including a Smoking Policy Map) may be found by clicking here.

If you have questions or require additional information with respect to any Handbook content, please contact Human Resources (extension 5800).
