About Tobacco-Free University Premises…

To promote healthier campuses, the University of Michigan will prohibit the use of all tobacco products on Nov. 17, 2022.

The Tobacco-Free University Premises policy (SPG 601.04) will include all university-owned and -operated buildings, facilities and vehicles on U-M’s campuses in Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint. U-M Health updated its policy in 2016 to prohibit all tobacco products. That policy will remain in place.

Tobacco-Free University Premises needs the respectful cooperation of all who work and study on U-M campuses, as well as those who visit the university. The policy relies on peer support, supervisory oversight and voluntary compliance.

As part of MHealthy, a campus-wide program to encourage wellness within the community, U-M is committed to helping those who wish to decrease their use of tobacco products, or to stop using tobacco entirely.
