Tobacco Free Campus

Heidelberg University remains committed to the health and wellness of its students and the broader campus community.  Among the efforts to be implemented by the University are efforts to promote and assist health awareness, wellness, and smoking/tobacco cessation and to enhance air quality and concern for the health and wellness of others throughout campus.


Smoking and use of all tobacco products are prohibited in all Heidelberg University buildings and structures, including immediately adjacent to any ingress or egress, in all Heidelberg University owned or rented vehicles, and in all sports, recreation, or other designated outdoor areas of campus.  Smoking is prohibited in any areas outside where smoke may enter a building through entrances, windows, ventilation systems, or other means. A minimum of 20 feet from those areas will be enforced at all times for tobacco use.
