Smoke Free UofL
The University of Louisville Belknap and Shelby Campuses went smoke-free Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009. This policy implementation coincided with the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout, held annually on the third Thursday in November. The Health Sciences Center campus has been smoke-free since 2004.
Beginning Nov. 19, smoking is not allowed on the Belknap and Shelbyhurst campuses except in designated smoking areas and, in the case of sidewalks along city streets, at least 50 feet from entrances to university buildings. Smoking is not allowed anywhere at the Health Sciences Center. The university has established 18 smoking areas throughout Belknap Campus and 2 areas on Shelby Campus.
The university immediately will provide a variety of tools to help our faculty, staff and students quit smoking. Information can be found at UofL Smoke Free.
