National Non-Smoking Day

Posted by mn251 at Mar 08, 2019 03:45 PM |
As we mark this day, we are asking staff and students to let us know your thoughts on the issues of smoking on campus.

The health and wellbeing of our staff and students is absolutely vital to us at the University so this National Non-Smoking Day is not only a time to support those of you who want to quit, but also to introduce some changes based on your feedback.

From Wednesday 13 March we’re introducing a smoke free zone around the David Wilson library as a result of staff and student feedback. We’ll also have a Gazebo in Centenary Square from 11am to 2pm on the day so that you can talk to us about any smoking or vaping concerns.

A group which includes staff, student and union representation from across the University Community has discussed the issues of smoking around our campus at length and are tasked with creating a campus where we can lessen the impact of smokers on others while meeting our legal requirements.

We need your input

In order to take steps towards a healthier and more welcoming campus want your input to inform our next steps so please take the time to complete our short questionnaire by 31 March 2019.
