Here at Swansea University, we have adopted a 'Smoke Free University' policy, to ensure a compliant, healthy and sustainable environment for everyone.

We all have the right to enjoy a sustainable and healthy learning and working environment, free from litter and the health risks associated with tobacco smoke and vapour. Whilst we recognise the right to choose whether to smoke or vape, we are committed to ensuring enclosed spaces (including University vehicles) and shared external spaces are entirely smoke and vapour free.

We believe staff, students, customers, contractors and visitors should respect the rights of our campus community to a smoke free environment.

Key Smoke Free University Policy arrangements

Our Smoke Free University Policy

Our Smoke Free University Policy (2021) has been developed following extensive consultation with University students and staff, unions and external partners such as Public Health Wales.
