Smoking Policy and Cessation Information

The University of Tampa Tobacco Policy

As of Aug. 1, 2013, the use of tobacco products is prohibited on The University of Tampa’s campus and other UT properties, except in designated smoke zones. All forms of tobacco/nicotine or other smokable or vaping products, including, but not limited to cigarettes, chew tobacco, electronic cigarettes, bidis, cigars, cigarillos, shisha and hookah, are to be confined to the four designated smoke zones. The zones are identified on the map and are located in the following areas:

  • Zone 1 - outside of Straz Hall near the baseball fields
  • Zone 2 - by the river, between the Library and McKay Hall
  • Zone 3 - near the Edison Building and Bailey Arts Studio (Large Oak Tree)
  • Zone 4 - in Delo Park in front of Austin Hall; this zone will be in the section of the park furthest from Austin Hall.
