Rowan University is a smoke-and-tobacco free campus effective January 2024.   
 

What does it mean to be a smoke- and tobacco-free campus?

A smoke- and tobacco-free campus policy prohibits smoking and tobacco use on all of Rowan University’s owned and leased properties, including all indoor and outdoor areas. This includes but is not limited to walkways, outdoor common areas, and parking lots. New Jersey state law prohibits smoking in all indoor areas, within 25 feet of public buildings (including colleges and universities), and in all state-owned vehicles. This policy includes products such as: cigarettes,cigars, hookahs, pipes, roll-your-own tobacco, smokeless tobacco, snus, and electronic delivery systems (e.g., e-cigarettes, vapes, pens).

A smoke- and tobacco-free campus policy also: prohibits the sale of all tobacco-related products and merchandise on campus; eliminates all tobacco-industry advertising, promotions, and marketing from campus literature; removes all athletic sponsorship from tobacco-related companies; and refuses any funding from tobacco companies.
