Smoke Free Environment Policy

To all staff and students

The national smoking ban came into effect on 1 July 2007. It is now against the law to smoke in enclosed public places, workplaces and public and work vehicles.

In addition, the University's Smoke Free Policy came into effect on the same day. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on any of the University's campuses, except in the designated smoking areas.

The University Policy on a Smoke Free Environment is available at:

Any queries should be addressed to either Paul Bogle University Solicitor (email: paul.bogle@canterbury.ac.uk) or Robert Melville, Assistant University Secretary (email: robert.melville@canterbury.ac.uk).
