UVic smoking policy

Smoking or vaping cannabis on campus will only be permitted in designated areas (see map).  These areas are intended for students who reside on campus and are of legal age (19 years or older).   

The designated cannabis smoking areas are shown on this map.

Remember there are federal, provincial and municipal laws and bylaws governing recreational cannabis use. Do your research before lighting up at a public park (hint: it’s illegal to do so).

If you plan to travel within or outside of Canada, be sure to look at any laws that may apply. For instance you risk arrest at US border crossings if you carry cannabis, despite state laws on cannabis use.
