Viterbo University works to help ensure a healthy campus environment by prohibiting the use, sale, advertisement and distribution of tobacco products in University facilities, on University grounds, at University-sponsored events, and in University vehicles. The use of tobacco products is restricted to smoking which is permitted only in designated outdoor areas on-campus.
Effective July 1, 2008, smoking on Viterbo University property will be further restricted to these outdoor areas:
- Area designated by signage between the Fine Arts Center and Brophy Nursing Center
- Area designated by signage outside the Student Union on ground level and near the southwest corner of Market Street and Franciscan Way
- V-Hawk Outdoor Athletic Complex – East side of the parking lot near lot extension
This policy is primarily peer enforced. Campus community members are asked to tactfully remind others to smoke only in designated areas. Persons violating this policy may be subject to disciplinary action. Students and employees who would like to quit smoking should contact Health Services for guidance, nicotine patches or smoking cessation kits.
