CCBC is Tobacco Free!

As part of our commitment to providing a safe, healthy environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors, CCBC has adopted a tobacco-free policy for the three main campuses; CCBC Catonsville, CCBC Dundalk, and CCBC Essex. Under this policy, tobacco use is prohibited in and around all buildings, parking lots, and athletic fields.

The CCBC Board of Trustees approved the tobacco-free policy after a yearlong series of open discussions with students, faculty, and staff.

Thank you for adhering to the policy and helping to promote a healthy CCBC!


Tobacco-use kiosks

Tobacco products may only be used within designated tobacco-use kiosks located on each campus or in private vehicles parked in the following areas:

CCBC Catonsville

  • Lots 3 and 6

CCBC Dundalk
  • Front parking loop (from the flagpoles south , toward the Observatory, to the entrance road)
  • Lots 3 and 4
  • Parking on the perimeter road

CCBC Essex
  • Lot 1 below (north) of Division Lane
  • Lots 3, 8, 7, 6 and 5

Bus shelters may not be used for smoking or any type of tobacco consumption! Tobacco-use kiosks are clearly marked. Cigarette butts, packaging and other trash must be deposited in designated receptacles only. Littering is punishable by citation and fine.


Extension centers

Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, and Randallstown are leased properties and are not owned by the college. Therefore the use of tobacco products is permitted, provided users are at least 25 feet away from the center building. Cigarette butts, packaging and other trash must be deposited in designated receptacles only. Littering is punishable by citation and fine.
