Lourdes University – A Smoke-Free Campus
After careful consideration of individual as well as group health, Lourdes University has decided it is in the best interest of our institution to make the Historic Campus smoke-free as of July 1, 2013.
The previously designated smoking areas will be eliminated and smoking will not be permitted anywhere on the grounds including but not limited to buildings, parking lots, vehicles, outdoor areas, cloister walks, entrance and exit ways, etc.
The smoking ban also extends beyond the 89-acre campus to include adjacent properties (Franciscan Academy of Lourdes University, The Den, Mission & Ministry house) and employer-owned or -operated vehicles. This policy does not apply to Convent Park Apartments or Lourdes Commons, as those entities have their own smoking policies.
