Tobacco Policy

Smoking is not permitted in any RISD building, in any place that allows smoke to migrate back into any building or anywhere that impedes the smoke-free entrance and exit from buildings. Violators may receive fines, other sanctions and/or be reassigned or removed from housing.

If smoking occurs in a student residence, the occupant(s) assigned to the particular room, suite or apartment are financially responsible for any and all repairs, replacements or cleaning necessary, as determined at the sole discretion of RISD staff members, required to remove all traces of smoking from the living quarters and its contents.

Providence's riverfront park offers a great setting for drawing and sketching, just across from RISD's Mandle Center for
Living and Learning.
