HCC welcomes community use of college facilities. In doing so, we ask that college policies be observed while on the HCC campus. Please note that, while space is available on a first come, first served basis, the college places special priority on use of the facility for educational purposes.
Smoking is prohibited on the Holyoke Community College campus. This includes our buildings and our outdoor spaces. The decision to establish a smoke free campus reflects HCC's commitment to provide an accessible, safe and healthy environment in which to learn and work. HCC is proud to have joined the hundreds of other colleges, universities and businesses across the nation that have gone smoke free. Visitors who wish to smoke in private vehicles may do so as long as the smoke is contained so that it is a health threat only to the occupants of the vehicle.
Holyoke Community College's policies encourage the use of college facilities for educational and civic purposes. Political discourse and events related to national, state and local elections enhance HCC's educational and community service mission. At the same time, it is important to stress that as a public college, all campus facilities are property of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, resulting in certain requirements. The facilities-use policies exist to ensure that activities can occur successfully alongside ongoing campus operations, and include the following guidelines:
