The policy prohibits smoking on all MIT premises, including areas previously designated as smoking areas.
The primary purpose of the Smoke Free Policy is to eliminate the serious risk to students and staff’s health and well being through passive smoking. MIT is not attempting to convert people who smoke into non-smokers. It does, however, recognise that smoking is an addiction and is keen to encourage those who wish to quit smoking and to offer support to them, whilst also not wishing to marginalise those who wish to continue to smoke.
