USF is committed to providing a safe, healthy and enjoyable learning, living and working environment. On January 4, 2016, the USF Tampa Campus became entirely tobacco and smoke free. Smoking and use of tobacco products are not allowed in any indoor or outdoor area, including parking garages, grounds, sidewalks or recreational areas. This policy also includes the use of e-cigarettes.
By becoming a tobacco and smoke free campus, USF hopes to promote overall health and wellness for the university community and create a more attractive and enjoyable campus experience by completely eliminating smoking and tobacco product use.
