Smoking affects health, pollutes the surrounding environment, and is prone to fire and other safety accidents. China University of Petroleum (Beijing) and College of International Education advocate reducing and quitting smoking.

 

For students who are accustomed to smoking, we emphasize that, according to the “Beijing Regulations on Smoking Control” and the regulations of CUPB, smoking is only allowed in designated outdoor smoking areas (with a special "Smoking Area" sign). Smoking is prohibited in any places (including teaching buildings, student apartments and other areas on campus) except designated smoking areas.

 

Students who violate the “Beijing Regulations on Smoking Control” and regulations of CUPB will be fined and disciplined by College of International Eduaction according to relevant regulations. The university also reserves the right to continue to hold students accountable if their personal smoking violations affect the reputation of the university and cause losses to the university.

 

In order to protect your health and safety and create a good living and learning environment, please supervise each other and report the illegal smoking clues and people. College of International Education will also carry out random checks on buildings and apartment rooms and punish smokers found to have violated the rules.
