Smoking Policy

Cincinnati State has instituted the following policy regarding smoking on campus:

    For the purposes of this policy, smoking is defined as the burning of any type of tobacco product, including, but not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos and pipes.  Additionally, this policy is expanded to include e-cigarettes and other forms of smoking substitutes which produce either a scented or unscented vapor. 

Smoking is prohibited in all Cincinnati State vehicles, all college buildings, and all outside areas of the campus, including  classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories, offices, work areas, study areas, reception areas, meeting rooms, lobbies, hallways, stairwells, elevators, eating areas, lounges, restrooms, covered walkways, breezeways and walkways between sections of buildings, bus-stop shelters, areas immediately adjacent to building and parking garage entrances, and exterior stairways and landings.

Smoking is prohibited within twenty-five (25) feet of any building entrance or HVAC intake vents, except for designated smoking areas.  All tobacco products must be disposed in appropriate smoking receptacles – not on the ground.


Designated smoking areas are clearly marked with signs:

  • Small loading dock area located at the front of the Main Building
  • Smokestack area located at the front of the Main Building
  • Smoking area located off of the front courtyard
  • Courtyard located between the Main Building and the ATLC


Cincinnati State reserves the right to administer sanctions through the College disciplinary process to any individual found in continuous violation of this policy. The Campus Police Department oversees compliance with this policy; however, all faculty, staff, and students have a collective responsibility to promote the safety and health of the campus community and therefore share in the responsibility of enforcement.

Cincinnati State reserves the right to appoint auxiliary personnel to ensure compliance, as necessary.
Organizers and attendees at public events, such as conferences, meetings, public lectures, social events, cultural events, and athletic events using Cincinnati State facilities will be required to abide by this policy.
