Memorial to ban smoking by 2013

Marine Institute ban effective immediately


Memorial University plans to ban smoking entirely by 2013, citing health concerns about second-hand smoke.

“Restricting smoking to designated areas will help make Memorial University’s campuses healthier places to live, study and work,” school officials wrote in a statement.

The Board of Regents approved a new smoking policy on July 7 that bans smoking near doorways as of Aug. 1. and compels smokers in residences to use designated areas only.

Smoking is no longer permitted anywhere on the Marine Institute’s property.
