Two new smoking areas added on campus

October 15, 2004

An image of the two added designated smoking areasIn response to the concerns of smokers living in campus residence halls, the University has approved the addition of two new designated smoking areas. The new sites are marked as locations 4 and 5 on the designated smoking area map.

Location 4 is on the sidewalk near the corner of Lake Merced Blvd. and South State Drive. Location 5 is on the pathway on South State Drive between the entrance to the Towers at Centennial Square and the parking garage.

Last spring, "in the interest of the health and well-being of smokers and non-smokers alike," the Academic Senate took up the issue of smoking on campus and passed a resolution calling for SFSU to become a smoke-free campus with designated smoking areas. The new policy took effect Aug. 23. Previous University policy prohibited smoking within 30 feet of any campus building.

More details about the new policy can be found at the smoke-free campus Web site.
