Smoking Policy Reminder

May 18, 2020

All individuals on the Caltech campus, including residents, employees, and visitors, are subject to adhere to the Pasadena Municipal Code, which includes specific regulations on tobacco use.

The city ordinance (8.78) prohibits smoking in all enclosed workplaces, in and around multiunit housing complexes, and within 20 feet of all campus building doorways, windows, and vents.

Smoking is further prohibited (ordinance 8.78.085) in all common areas of multiunit housing complexes, such as our student houses, the Catalina Apartments, and other rental properties owned by Caltech.

It is important that all members of our community abide by local laws and respect those who wish to avoid secondhand smoke.
