Williams College Employee Handbook
All members of the community and visitors are expected to comply with the College's regulations on smoking. Because both smoking and its secondary effects are known to be health concerns, the College prohibits smoking in all buildings, including student rooms, offices, and indoor facilities of the College or within 25 feet of a College building. This policy includes the smoking of tobacco products and the use of electronic smoking devices. Electronic smoking device means an electronic device that can be used to deliver nicotine or other substances to the person inhaling from the device, including, but not limited to, an electronic cigarette, cigar, cigarillo, or pipe.
The one exception is in College-owned faculty/staff rental housing. In faculty/staff rental housing, in apartments and/or duplexes, smoking is not permitted in any shared areas (hallways, entries, etc.) of the facility, nor in fire or safety hazard exits.
Smoking is not permitted in College vehicles.
Members of the community are asked to comply with and to enforce these policies. Complaints or questions should be directed to the appropriate Senior Staff member: for faculty, the Dean of the Faculty; for students, the Dean of the College; for any and all others, the Vice President for Finance & Administration and Treasurer.
