Smoke Free Campus Law

UH Hilo is a “smoke free campus”.

As a friendly reminder, effective July 10, 2018, Hawaiʻi state law (SB 134, Act 160, SLH 2018) now prohibits the use of tobacco products on all 10 UH campuses and university-owned facilities.

We encourage everyone to refrain from using tobacco products while on any property owned or operated by the University of Hawaiʻi. Tobacco products include, but are not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, smoking tobacco, electronic cigarettes, vapes and chewing tobacco. The University of Hawaiʻi system implemented a Tobacco Products policy in an effort to improve the working and learning environment of the university, and protect faculty, staff, students, and visitors from secondhand smoke exposure while on University of Hawaiʻi campuses.

In the spirit of aloha, we ask that all individuals obey this new law. Any questions can be directed to: Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs at (808) 932-7650, or the Environmental Health and Safety Office at (808) 932-7638.
