Smoke-and Tobacco-Free Campus - July 1, 2015.

In compliance with the State of Illinois' Smoke-Free Campus Act, Illinois State University will become smoke and tobacco-free on July 1st. With the enactment of this new law, smoking and tobacco use will be prohibited on all campus property, including buildings, grounds, parking lots, and vehicles that are owned or operated by a state-supported institution of higher education. 

How does this act affect the campus transients? Smoking and tobacco use in private vehicles is allowed in unenclosed parking lots; however, smoking and tobacco use outside of vehicles in university owned or operated parking lots is prohibited. Parking garages are considered enclosed structures where smoking is prohibited.

A list of frequently asked questions regarding this act can be found by following the link below:
