By 2014, the University of California will become smoke-free — smoking and chewing tobacco will be banned on campuses, including parking lots and housing, as part of the UC commitment to cut tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. The sale and advertising of tobacco products also will be prohibited.
Currently, all 10 UC campuses offer housing in smoke free buildings to their students. Options include residence halls, apartments and houses. In addition, some campuses have smoke free housing for employees (postdoctoral fellows, faculty, etc.). Housing on UC campuses requires UC affiliation, and is not open to the public at large.
