Personally I like the rule...especially living in Riker where the vents are vertical, I don't want to smell it...the promise of no smoking was the only way that my quad was finalized.
Actually I thought it was 30 feet, but I just went and checked and I don't see anything about having to be a certain distance away. Basically all it says is "Smoking shall be prohibited in any portion of a building used as a student dormitory that is owned and operated or otherwise utilized by a school or institution of higher education." from (http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2004/Bi...00/2332_R2.HTM
Also, I've lived in Riker the past 2 years (and though I lived in the basement, I've spent a good deal of time in other rooms) and have never smelled smoke through the vent. I also havent heard anything from the vent that wasnt coming from the room right next door. That may be just me though.
