Effective August 1, 2015 Loyola University has become a 100% tobacco-free campus. Through tobacco-related research, public awareness, and policy change, Loyola University has promoted the public health of its community. This change in policy reflects the Loyola community’s change in knowledge about and attitude towards the use of tobacco and tobacco related products. The change in policy outlines that the use of any tobacco product (smoking, chewing, etc.) as well as the use of inhalers, vapors, and e-cigarettes is prohibited on Loyola’s campus.
