Parkville Campus Updated Smoking Policy Begins July 1

Tuesday, June 24, 2014


Beginning Tuesday, July 1, Park University’s updated smoking policy will go into effect — smoking on the Parkville Campus will be limited to the burgundy-colored bench areas only. All other areas of campus are considered “smoke-free,” including parking lots, sidewalks and Park-owned vehicles.

In preparation for July 1, the burgundy-colored benches/smoking locations have been moved to their newly-designated areas in an effort to help individuals become accustomed to the new locations. These new locations are as follows:
          •  Northwest corner of Herr House parking lot (previously located between Thompson Commons and Herr House)
          •  North side of Findlay-Wakefield Science Hall near loading dock (previously located between Norrington Center and Findlay-Wakefield Science Hall)
          •  Between Alumni Hall and Copley-Thaw Hall (previously located outside Copley Quad)
          •  North side of Copley Quad and west of the driveway (previously located near the 6th Street pedestrian bridge)

As a reminder, this is part of a two-step approach to make the Parkville Campus smoke-free by July 1, 2015. For more information, visit www.park.edu/terms-and-regulations/tobacco-use-policy.html.
