Allergy Alert

The Disability Resource Centre is an allergen-free zone. The following allergens are prohibited in the DRC office area and all exam rooms:

  • Cologne, perfume, and other scented products
  • All nuts (peanuts and tree nuts)

UBC Okanagan has implemented a voluntary Scent Free Program on campus. Scented personal products contain chemicals which can cause health problems for many people, especially those with asthma, allergies, or environmental illnesses. The University Health & Safety Committee asks for your support in limiting the use of scented personal care products.

Scented products can cause sore throat, runny nose, sinus congestion, wheezing, shortness of breath, headache, mental confusion, inability to concentrate, flushing, irritability, nausea, muscle pain, or migraines. Besides perfume, cologne and aftershave some products that may contain added scents are soap, lotions, deodorants, shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, make-up, sun screen, detergent, fabric softener, cleaning products, candles and air fresheners.

For more information, visit the Scent Free Education and Awareness page.
