Smoking/Clean Air Policy

Augsburg College is an educational institution that appreciates and endorses a healthy environment for its students, staff, faculty, guests, and community.

  • Smoking (including electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, and electronic nicotine delivery systems) is prohibited in all indoor facilities, including residence halls.
  • Smoking (including electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, and electronic nicotine delivery systems) is permitted only in designated outside areas.

Those who smoke are also responsible for properly disposing of cigarette butts or e- cigarette waste.

The success of this policy will depend on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of smokers and non-smokers.  Everyone shares the responsibility for adhering to and enforcing the policy.  In all cases the right of the non-smoker to protect her or his health and comfort will take precedence over a smoker’s desire to smoke.
