Effective January 1, 2012, the University of Missouri-St. Louis became tobacco-free on all campus property, both indoors and outdoors. The term “tobacco-free” means that the smoking or other use of any tobacco or tobacco-type product, including, but not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, hookas, e-cigarettes and pipes is prohibited1. Campus property includes all owned or leased buildings, parking garages and parking lots; owned or leased vehicles; and owned or leased outdoor grounds and sidewalks. This policy applies to faculty, staff, students, contractor and consultant employees, performers, visitors and the general public.
