Smoking Policy

Certain areas of the campus are designated as non-smoking. Specifically, all interior spaces of all buildings and all exterior space within 50 feet of all buildings are designated as “No Smoking”. 

In order for Rhodes to have an environment that is relatively free of pollutants or other substances that may be hazardous to one’s health, members of the campus community are encouraged to direct those who choose to smoke to do so in exterior locations at least 50 feet away from all buildings.  

All residence hall spaces are non-smoking, including student rooms, social rooms, and hallways. This policy includes e-cigarettes, which are not permitted for use in any buildings. A violation of the smoking policy is also a violation of the fire safety policy.
