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, hookahs, 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.

1Pending further review by the University Assembly, hookahs and e-cigarettes are prohibited on campus property until further notice. A final decision will be reached during the Fall 2015 semester.
