Smoke Free Campus
GCU is committed to creating a high quality, healthy working environment for staff, students and visitors. In accordance with that commitment, the University Executive and the Joint Consultative Committee, have recently approved an updated version of the Smoke Free Campus Policy.
The main effect of the updated policy is that from 15th October 2007, smoking is prohibited on any part of the University campus. This policy applies equally to members of staff, students, visitors and contractors.
The policy seeks to promote the wider health and wellbeing agenda, with the Occupational Health team and the Students Association providing a number of supporting initiatives to anyone who wishes to stop smoking.
Please see below link to the revised Smoke Free Campus Policy. For staff who have any queries in relation to the policy or provision of smoking cessation information, please contact the OH Adviser on ext 8212. For students, please contact the Student’s Association/Welfare Department.
