Smoking is not permitted inside any buildings, including dormitories. In fact, the city of Santa Fe has recently passed a Smoke Free Ordinance requiring that all outdoor smoking take place "only at a distance of 25' in radius from the entrance to any enclosed area where smoking is prohibited". Please respect this ordinance. However, please also note that fire danger is extremely high in New Mexico due to an ongoing drought, so if you smoke, please carefully dispose of your cigarettes in the small ashtrays or ash buckets located throughout campus.

The speed limit on campus is 15 miles per hour. Please take your time as you drive through our small campus, mind the speed bumps, and watch for pedestrians.
