Advisory Council

Lourdes University’s Historic Campus at 6832 Convent Blvd. is a smoke-free environment, including e-cigarettes and chewing tobacco.

Smoking of any kind is explicitly prohibited anywhere on the historic grounds including but not limited to inside the Lourdes Commons residence halls and any other campus buildings. The smoking ban also extends beyond the 89 acre campus to include adjacent properties (Franciscan Academy of Lourdes University, The Den, Mission & Ministry house, the path between Lourdes Commons and Convent Blvd) and includes Lourdes owned or operated vehicles.

This smoking ban does not apply to public rights-of-way (sidewalks, streets) on the perimeter of the campus.

Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action and sanctions up to and including expulsion, in the case of Lourdes University students, or termination of employment, in the case of employees. Individuals who bring visitors, guests, contractors, etc. to campus are expected to inform them of our site smoking policy and ensure they are in compliance.

This policy does not apply to Convent Park Apartments or Lourdes Commons Housing, as those entities have their own smoking policies.

For more information, please review the policy.
