Is Vaping banned at uni halls? and does it trigger the smoke alarms? I heard from some friends that Vapers don't trigger smoke alarms so I'm kind of confused.

I believe it has the same rules as smoking attached to it but depends on the university.

yeah I'm pretty sure it's viewed the same and will set the smoke alarms off

also, it's horrible living with someone smoking or vaping - don't be an *******

It's the same as smoking. Isn't allowed in rooms. Depends on the uni, but I got fined cause it made the alarm go off (all because I had my curtain covering my open window).

If you window opens like literally opens (mine did as in you could jump out of it cause it could open like a door) then just make sure you stick your head out.

If your window doesn't just smoke outside or near the smoking area/cover. Plus it's a good way to meet freshers if you do that.

I never said it wasn't, the OP asked about vaping

well the issue with vaping/smoking is that it gets everywhere... I had a flatmate who vaped and did shisha in his room and kicked off at me cos he 'didn't get my problem' as they weren't cigarettes, didn't seem to care that my room stank, the windows barely opened so it took forever to air out and it was irritating my asthma - so there's an added health component there, I had asthma attacks due to this moron

someone who is inflicting their drunkeness on you is also horrible to live with if they're loud all night/making you deal with their vomit etc but I don't have an issue with people being drunk if they're not causing an issue

Be aware that even vaping out of a window could get you fined if staff or wardens see you.

I have nothing else to add other than at my old university (Loughborough) vaping was treated the same as smoking in my hall. I don't know of anyone that got caught though so they might have just been empty threats. Plenty of people smoke weed and do a hell of a lot worse whilst at uni so as long as you are aware of the consequences (and by consequences I mean the consequences of getting caught) then it's up to you if you want to do it. Don't be surprised if the pentalties for getting caught are harsh though.

I’ve read an article which claims that vaping is 95% safer on your health and your family or friends than smoking! So why is it banned in residence halls?

Is this anything like vaping in living rooms? Recent evidence is now forcing such opinion to reconsider.

I don’t think there’s enough evidence to know whether they are safe. They may be safer than cigarettes, but you’re still subjecting other others to untested chemicals. Some people are so selfish.

Even if vaping was not banned in halls, it would't be nice to subject others to some powerful stuff like flight herbal incense or vapes, yet they do not want the same experience, you dig?
