New e-smoking area on campus

24 October 2014 by

We are pleased to let you know that there is now a separate smoking area for those who wish to use e-cigarettes in the courtyard between the Edward Elgar and Charles Darwin buildings at the St. John’s campus.

Please can you be sensitive to others and do not smoke tobacco cigarettes in this area as many people are using e-cigarettes to try and give up smoking and the smell of real smoke may negatively affect their resolve to quit. The e-smoking area is also close to office windows and using tobacco cigarettes will affect people in nearby offices.
