Effective July 1, 2014 smoking is restricted to 14 locations on the Morningside campus. View a map of designated smoking areas.
All designated places are at least 20 feet from building entrances, but still provide smoking areas near highly trafficked campus locations, with shelter when possible, or along commonly used travel routes. Smoking urns are located in each area to identify the appropriate location easily and to ensure that cigarettes are disposed of in the proper waste receptacle.
All members of the Columbia community, as well as visitors, are expected to voluntarily comply with the smoking policy.
Columbia Morningside Campus students, who have paid the Columbia Health Fee, may also schedule an appointment for the Tobacco Cessation Program at Columbia Health’s Medical Services.
