Tobacco-Free Campus Policy Update
The American Cancer Society’s Great American Smoke Out is approaching on Thursday, November 16. Now is an excellent time to familiarize yourself with Penn’s updated Tobacco-Free Campus Policy, which supersedes the Tobacco Use and Smoking on Campus Policy.
Penn’s tobacco-free campus journey began in 2014, when the University convened a campus-wide Tobacco Committee, chaired by Dr. Frank Leone from Penn’s Comprehensive Smoking Treatment Program, to research how Penn could become a tobacco-free campus.
Based on the committee’s report, and thanks to the collaboration of Penn’s Tobacco-Free Campus implementation team, schools and centers across the University have worked together to increase awareness of smoking cessation support services and reduce visual cues around campus that encouraged or permitted tobacco usage. The Tobacco-Free Campus Policy has also been revised to clearly state Penn’s intent to become 100% tobacco-free.

Tobacco-Free Campus Policy 704.1 Policy
The University of Pennsylvania is committed to maintaining a healthy and safe learning, working and living environment for all members and guests of our community. It therefore is the policy of the University of Pennsylvania that all smoking and tobacco use (including the use of smokeless tobacco) is prohibited in all University buildings and facilities, including but not limited to any meeting rooms, community areas, performance venues and private residential space within University of Pennsylvania housing. Smoking and tobacco use is also prohibited in all University of Pennsylvania vehicles (owned or leased), regardless of location. Finally, smoking and the use of tobacco products is prohibited on any University of Pennsylvania property, including but not limited to outdoor spaces (such as College Green, Shoemaker Green, Locust Walk, etc.), as well as parking lots, paths, fields, sports/recreational areas, and stadiums. Where University of Pennsylvania buildings are adjacent to public sidewalks or streets, smoking and the use of tobacco products is prohibited on those public sidewalks and streets within twenty (20) feet of the entrance to the building.
The tobacco policy covers all smoking methods, including but not limited to the use of electronic smoking devices (e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes) and hookah-smoked products.
Compliance with the applicable law and this policy is the responsibility of all members and guests of the University of Pennsylvania community. Any person with concerns about the implementation of or compliance with this policy should refer the matter to his or her immediate supervisor or manager for resolution. If the matter cannot be resolved at this level, the concern should be referred to the Division of Human Resources, Staff and Labor Relations or the appropriate Dean or Vice President.

The Division of Public Safety is committed to enhancing the quality of life for the campus community by integrating the best practices of public and private policing with state-of-the-art technology. A critical component of a comprehensive security plan using state-of-the-art technology is Closed Circuit Television (CCTV).
As prescribed by the University Policy “Closed Circuit Television Monitoring and Recording of Public Areas for Safety and Security Purposes” (Almanac April 29, 2008), the locations of all outside CCTV cameras monitored by Public Safety are to be published semi-annually in Almanac. The locations and descriptions of these cameras can also be found on the Division of Public Safety website: https://www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/about/tec/closed-circuit-television-cctv
