Effective July 1, 2012, all Manchester University campuses are tobacco-free.
Manchester University is dedicated to providing and promoting a healthy and productive environment for its students, faculty, staff, and guests. This Tobacco-Free Campus Policy is consistent with that goal.
The use of tobacco products is prohibited on all Manchester University campuses at all times. Tobacco use includes any lighted tobacco products and/or any oral tobacco products. The prohibited areas within each of the campuses include all buildings, facilities, indoor and outdoor spaces, and grounds owned or leased by the University. This policy also applies to parking lots, sports venues, University vehicles and private vehicles parked on University property. For purposes of this policy only, the North Manchester campus is further defined to include the streets, sidewalks, and tree lawns within the campus, as well as all properties adjacent to the campus.
The responsibility for carrying out this policy is placed upon all members of the University community. Each member of the community is responsible to inform visitors and guests of this policy.
All community members and guests will be treated with dignity and respect. Persistent violators, however, should be reported to their supervisors (faculty, staff, or contractors) or to the Office of Residential Life (Student Development). Violations of this policy will be addressed as an employment performance issue for employees and as a conduct issue for students.
Information regarding tobacco cessation assistance is available at Health Services and the Office of Human Resources.
Thank you for respecting our tobacco-free campus!
