Breathe Easy, IVC

Irvine Valley College is committed to providing a healthy and clean learning environment for our students, employees and visitors. To support this commitment, IVC has become a smoke-free campus.

We want students, faculty and staff to breathe easy, knowing second-hand smoke hazards have been eliminated. We want visitors to see a beautiful campus without littered cigarette butts.

To support those trying to kick the habit, the Health and Wellness Center will offer smoke cessation programs.

Using tobacco products such as cigars, cigarettes, pipes, electronic cigarettes (vapor), and smokeless or chewing tobacco is prohibited within any college facility and outside area of campus. The campus extends from Irvine Center Drive to Jeffrey Road to Barranca Parkway. This applies to students, faculty, staff, administrators, visitors and the general public attending campus events. Violators could be subject to citation.

The Board of Trustees approved the policy change at its January 15, 2015, meeting. It is the policy of the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) to maintain a smoke-free environment for all district sites.​
