Glasgow Caledonian University recognises the right of all staff and students within the University to enjoy a smoke free environment.

As such, it is the policy of the University that smoking (including cigarettes, e-cigarettes, pipes etc) is prohibited throughout the entire University campus with no exceptions, (including the students association, University buildings, walkways, paths etc. and University vehicles) and those wishing to smoke should do so in the designated smoking shelter provided at the back of the Hamish Wood Building or go off campus.

Managers will be responsible for ensuring, within their own areas of responsibility, that students and visitors are informed of the arrangements in place.

If you are a smoker and thinking of stopping, then the following organisations can be approached for further information:
