UCI Is a Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Campus
UC Irvine is committed to providing a healthy working, learning and living environment for all members of the campus community and its visitors. Smoking-related illness, including those related to tobacco smoke, comprises the largest proportion of preventable diseases.
As a leader in health and health care, as well as environmental research, policy, practice and education, UC Irvine has a responsibility to demonstrate leadership in reducing tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure for our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
This affects everyone on UC Irvine property, including students, faculty, staff, guests and visitors. We ask that all tobacco users be respectful of our initiative.
This policy prohibits smoking on all campus properties including all indoor and outdoor areas. Smoking is prohibited everywhere on campus and at properties owned or leased by UC Irvine, including all parking lots.
Enforcement is educational, and all students, faculty, staff and visitors are expected to abide by current policies.
