Smoking Policy

Lasell complies with the Massachusetts Clean Indoor Air Act (Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 270, Sect. 22), which requires that smoking be prohibited at private colleges within the Commonwealth except in areas designated by the college as smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted in any building on campus, and this prohibition includes e-cigarettes and hookahs. Students who choose to smoke outside of any campus building are asked to use appropriate receptacles to dispose of cigarettes, and are asked to smoke at least 25 feet away from a building's entrance and/or windows. Students living in college owned or operated buildings will find further information on the college's smoking policy in the "Residential Life" section of this Handbook.
