Smoking and Tobacco Policy

Under The City University of New York Board of Trustees Resolution passed September 24, 1994, all CUNY facilities are smoke-free environments. No smoking is permitted at any time in The Graduate Center or in any space owned, leased, or operated by The City University of New York.

Smoking is also prohibited in front of the building’s entrances. The CUNY Tobacco Policy, effective September 4, 2012, further prohibits: (i) the use of tobacco on all grounds and facilities un- der CUNY jurisdiction, including indoor locations and outdoor locations such as playing fields; entrances and exits to buildings; and parking lots; (ii) tobacco industry promotions, advertising, marketing, and distribution of marketing materials on campus properties; and (iii) tobacco industry sponsorship of athletic events and athletes. Violations by students of the no-smoking and CUNY Tobacco Policies will be referred to the Vice President for Student Affairs and may result in disciplinary action. Questions about the no-smoking policy should be addressed to the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Room 7301.
