Smoking to be banned on all University Sites ( student living halls excluded).
Smoking is an incredibly unhealthy habbit which causes around 106,000 deaths per year in the UK alone. As a university we should be promoting healthy living habbits. Not only is smoking harmful to the smoker, but it is harmful to the people around them as well. People exposed to secondhand smoke have a 24% higher chance of contracting lung cancer and/or heart disease. The smell of cigarettes can be extremely offensive to some people and when that odor is brought into university buildings it causes an uncomfortable learning environment.
