On June 1, 2017, the entire UT Dallas campus is going tobacco-free. Join the celebration from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the North Mall.

The use of tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, water pipes, hookahs, electronic cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, snuff, chewing tobacco, etc.) will be prohibited everywhere on campus in order to create a healthier work, research and learning environment.

Under the current policy, all buildings are already tobacco-free, and the use of tobacco products is prohibited within 10 meters of Lloyd V. Berkner Hall (BE), the Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory (RL), and all sidewalks, walkways, parking lots, and attached parking structures immediately adjacent to either building.

A task force is currently working to update the University’s tobacco-free policy and signage, as well as ensure effective education and cessation resources are provided to the campus community. Watch for more updates coming soon about our transition to become a tobacco-free campus and join our 13 sister institutions in establishing a system-wide tobacco-free culture.
