California State Law prohibits smoking within 25 feet (ft) of main entrances, exits, operable windows, or ventilation system intakes. Smoking at CCA is only allowed at the designated smoking areas for both the San Francisco campus and Oakland campus, no exceptions! While smoking is lawful on city sidewalks, be courteous to those who are coming to and leaving from either campus by smoking away from the main entrance.
The designated smoking area on the SF campus is 25 feet from the exit doors of the Admissions Office (approximately 50 ft East from the corner of 8th St & Hooper). There is a sign on the wall designating this area for smoking and ash/butt receptacle on the easement. The designated smoking area on the Oakland campus is the smoke shack located to the right of the main entrance (Between Macky Lawn and Faculty Parking lot).
Bicycling on campus property, walkways, driveways, paths, etc... is prohibited. Please walk your bicycle, skateboard or scooter to avoid injuring yourself or others in the CCA community. Racks for parking and locking bicycles are located in several convenient locations around the Oakland campus. Bicycles may not be parked inside buildings on the Oakland campus because they could present a hazard in an emergency. Bicycles locked to handicapped access ramps or stairs on either campus may be damaged and will be removed. Such conduct by non-CCA-affiliated persons is a form of trespassing and by CCA-affiliated persons is subject to disciplinary action. Bicycles are to be removed, by the owner, at the end of every semester. Bicycles left behind shall be considered abandoned and will be donated to charity. Notices will be placed on the bicycles prior to bicycles being removed by Public Safety for donation.
