An­other cam­pus goes smoke free

The Queensland Times - - News -

UQ Gat­ton cam­pus will go “smoke-free” from July 1. It’s among a grow­ing list of uni­ver­si­ties that has made the move fol­low­ing a Par­lia­men­tary Com­mit­tee In­quiry last year. UQ spokesper­son Es­ther Haskell said the de­ci­sion was made in July 2017. Stu­dents and staff were of­fered sup­port to quit. “The de­ci­sion to be­come smoke-free fur­ther sup­ports and pro­motes the health and well­be­ing of the en­tire UQ com­mu­nity,” Ms Haskell said. Stu­dents who wish to smoke will have to do so out­side of the bound­ary of each cam­pus. The pol­icy cov­ers all cam­puses, re­search sites, UQ-leased premises, carparks and ovals.
