UMSL Smoke Free

Breathe logo

As part of our ongoing commitment to maintain a campus that’s a healthy place for all students, faculty, staff and visitors, the University of Missouri­–St. Louis is tobacco-free.

We are tobacco-free on all indoor and outdoor campus properties, which include university-owned and university-leased buildings, parking garages, parking lots, outdoor grounds, sidewalks and vehicles.

The tobacco-free policy applies to faculty, staff, students, contractor and consultant employees, performers, visitors and the general public.

To help tobacco users kick the habit or manage their cravings while on campus, this website offers information on our policy and cessation resources. Along with a free smoking cessation program, other free resources (nicotine patches, lozenges and gum) are also available. Together, we’ll keep UMSL a clean, healthy and beautiful place.
