The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College is a non-smoking campus, and as such, the college promotes a smoke-free environment. The following guidelines will help to ensure proper understanding of the college’s smoking policy:
1. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on college property, including such areas as parking lots, porches, and sidewalks on college properties, as well as classrooms, offices, and Residential Learning buildings.
2. Smoking is not permitted within 50 feet of any entrances on campus, including the Center for Hospitality Studies at 4100 Walnut Street.
3. As per Philadelphia law, smoking is permitted on city-owned sidewalks provided it is at least 25 feet from any entrance; however, the college has increased this to 50 feet.
Violators smoking inside any college-owned building or in any non-designated area will be subject to a fine and will be referred to the Executive Vice President for sanction. For your convenience and the cleanliness of the campus, ash cans are provided near entrances and exits of many buildings. Please do not throw cigarette butts on sidewalks or in public areas. Instead, properly dispose of them in ash cans.
