Smoking and Tobacco

Wentworth Institute of Technology is proud to be a Tobacco Free Community. Our tobacco free community includes all areas of the campus (e.g. buildings and facilities, parking lots, campus parks/green spaces, the front lawn, main quadrangle, Sweeney Field, and all pedestrian walkways). Wentworth residential students and guests are permitted to smoke in the designated outdoor smoking areas adjacent to residential buildings. Wentworth students are expected to abide by all state policies and ordinances related to the use of all smoking and tobacco products.  With this policy, Wentworth joined the American College Health Association in supporting the findings of the Surgeon General that tobacco use in any form, active or passive, is a significant health hazard. Wentworth also joined hundreds of colleges and universities across the nation committed to making their campus healthier environments. The smoking of electronic, vapor or other substitute forms of cigarettes is prohibited.
