Let's Share Clean Air: Loyola Is Tobacco Free

Aug 5, 2015 by Heather Seaman

At Loyola, we are committed to promoting a healthy and safe environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Effective Friday, August 1, 2015, Loyola University New Orleans became a tobacco free campus, banning the use of all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and chewing tobacco. The use of all tobacco products is prohibited in all indoor and outdoor campus spaces including, but not limited to: campus buildings, grounds, exterior open spaces, parking lots, on-campus sidewalks, streets, driveways, athletic facilities, practice facilities, recreational spaces, and residence halls.

The city of New Orleans went smoke-free in April, and the change included all public spaces, bars, restaurants, and hotels, among other places. Loyola is also joining all regional and state funded Louisiana universities in becoming tobacco free.  Learn more about Loyola's new tobacco free policy at loyno.edu/tobaccofree.
