UC Irvine is committed to providing a healthy working, learning and living environment for all members of the campus community and its visitors. Effective January 1, 2014, UC joins more than 1,100 colleges and universities nationwide by implementing a system-wide smoke & tobacco-free policy. This policy prohibits smoking on all campus properties including all indoor and outdoor areas. Smoking is prohibited everywhere on campus and at properties owned or leased by UC Irvine, including all parking lots. This affects everyone on UC Irvine property, including students, faculty, staff, guests and visitors. We ask that all tobacco users be respectful of our initiative. Learn more.
