Effective no later than September 4, 2012, the use of tobacco will be prohibited on all grounds and facilities under CUNY jurisdiction, including indoor locations and outdoor locations such as playing fields; entrances and exits to buildings; and parking lots.

This policy applies to all tobacco and tobacco products including chew tobacco and e-cigarettes.

Want to get a jump on the policy and quit smoking now? CUNY has a bunch of smoking cessation resources for students and, for those of you that teach at the colleges, for faculty too.
