Tobacco Free UC Policy

Tobacco Free UC

All University of Cincinnati campuses (including UC Blue Ash College) are now tobacco free. Review what this includes and have your questions answered about the new policy. 

What is included in “tobacco?”

Tobacco is defined as all tobacco-derived or tobacco-containing products including, but not limited to, cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, vaporizing devices, cigars and cigarillos, hookah smoked products, pipes, oral tobacco (e.g., spit and spitless, smokeless, chew or snuff) and nasal tobacco (e.g., snus). It also includes any product intended to mimic tobacco products, contain tobacco flavoring or the smoking of any other substance which delivers nicotine.

To whom does the policy apply?

This policy applies to the entire UC community, including but not limited to: students, employees (faculty, staff, and administrators), trustees, visitors, volunteers, vendors, and contractors who are on property and facilities owned or operated by UC.
