A Smoke-Free Campus
Smoking is prohibited on Sylvania Franciscan Campus property. 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.
Smoking anywhere on University property including, but not limited to buildings, parking lots, vehicles, outdoor areas, cloister walks, entrance and exit ways, etc. is not permitted except for the two designated smoking areas at Lourdes Commons (the cement picnic table located behind Rosaria Hall and the cement picnic table between Justinian and Bonaventure Halls). Smoking of any kind is explicitly prohibited 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 (Canticle Center, 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.
“Smoking,” as used in this policy, means smoking any substance including, but not limited to, tobacco, cloves, or marijuana. The use of smoke producing products including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, electronic cigarettes, etc. is also prohibited.
