Please be advised that due to the anticipated storm, the last Lamont-Doherty shuttle departing from the Morningside campus will leave at 1:00 p.m. The last shuttle departing from Lamont-Doherty will leave at 2:00 p.m. 

Designated Smoking Areas in Effect

Effective July 1, 2014 smoking is restricted to 14 locations on the Morningside campus. View a map of designated smoking areas.

All designated places are at least 20 feet from building entrances, but still provide smoking areas near highly trafficked campus locations, with shelter when possible, or along commonly used travel routes.

Smoking urns are located in each area, making it easy to identify the appropriate location and to ensure that cigarettes are disposed of in the proper waste receptacle.

All members of the Columbia community, as well as visitors, are expected to voluntarily comply with the smoking policy.

For information regarding New York State’s smoking cessation program, call 1-866-NY-QUITS.
