Smoking Policies

In an effort to limit exposure to second-hand smoke for our students, faculty and staff, Dutchess Community College has eight designated smoking areas on the main campus in Poughkeepsie, and one at DCC South. Smoking on either campus is permitted only at designated smoking locations and outside on the northwest corner of DCC South. All areas are signed accordingly. Please be sure to use the cigarette butt receptacles provided when you are finished smoking.

The designated smoking areas are as follows:

  • South of Taconic on way to the Day Care Center
  • In the patio between Hudson and SSB
  • In the gazebo near Pine Grove
  • To the left of the Falcon Hall main entrance
  • On the landing between Dutchess and the main walkway
  • On the patio between Washington and Drumlin
  • The loading area of CBI
  • Near the Receiving area of the Physical Plant
  • The northwest corner of DCC South
