ResRules Session 25th August 2012
1.4 Smoking: Smoking of any legal substance within 9 meters of any residence building. There are hundreds of smoke detectors in every residence at Queen’s and all can be triggered easily so as to ensure the highest level of safety for residents. Smoking within 9m of a residence building could trigger those alarms, often unnecessarily. Furthermore, if smoking occurs too close to residence buildings, it may travel into residents’ rooms and disturb them. It is thus inconsiderate and not respectful to do this. Unwelcoming atmosphere for people walking by
