Reminder: WUSTL campuses are tobacco-free as of July 1

Washington University campuses became tobacco-free this past July, which means smoking and tobacco use now is prohibited on all university-owned and -managed properties. The university will continue to work with community members to support tobacco-cessation efforts.

WUSTL on track to become tobacco-free July 1

All WUSTL campuses will be tobacco-free beginning July 1 — less than 10 weeks from today. To that end, the university continues to offer tobacco cessation resources for students, faculty and staff and is assisting supervisors with the transition to a tobacco-free environment. At 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 27, in Seigle Hall, Room 304, the Office of Human Resources is sponsoring a program for supervisors titled “The Tobacco-Free Environment: Understanding the Impact.”
