Smoke Free Campus
Cape Breton University is committed to providing a healthy work and educational environment for its students, employees and visitors. Effective October 17, 2018, under the new Smoke-Free Campus Policy, CBU transitioned to a smoke free campus with two designated smoking areas.
The Smoke-Free Campus Policy covers tobacco, cannabis, e-cigarettes, vaporizers, and hookahs. Employees should also reference the new Substance Use Policy and students should review the Student Code of Conduct.
Cape Breton University’s Smoke-Free Campus policy, recognizes and provides exemptions for traditional cultural or spiritual practices by Indigenous members of the CBU community.
